Too tired for top groove. Easy looking 2nd pitch covered in lichen so we abbed off belay. Surprised to see no mention of it on here.
Ed Babs - Lead dog - 01/Jul/14 with AlexD

Great bridging all the way, could be tricky route-finding in upper groove as flake (with pegs) is quite far over to the right. Fixed ab point at top of pitch 1 - doesn't look like p2 is climbed anymore??

Top groove was tricky!
shed_hed - 2nd O/S - 25/May/13 with Dougie Swanson-Low

The tricky groove had me stuck for a while until i committed to the exhausting shuffle... Had to work quite hard for E2.

Hard! First route at Crafnant. I popped my finger pulley on a little crimp at the back of the groove. Owch. What a route to do it on! MEGA
al99 - AltLd O/S - 15/Jun/11 with Andy Woolston

awesome route, eryr is a great crag. great lead by benji and way harder than E2. Top pitch is also not really 5b, easier.
centurion05 - AltLd O/S - 15/Jun/11

Nails! Hard moves up into the first groove and then gets distinctively harder in the top groove! A bit quarryman-esque and the pegs are poor but well backed up by a good wire. Quite a bit of kit, but still feels out there. Defo E3 if you ask me, Stimulator was waay easier and there is no contention over the grade on that one. 1st up out of 4 today, and I'm the shittest...
Duncan Campbell - UKC - Lead O/S - 31/May/11 with Jake

I went last out of all four of us, and was told it was gonna be brick hard and gripping. Found it fine I guess because I was ready for it.
Alex Mason - Lead β - 31/May/11 with Steve Ramsden

Nails! (it looks like yu have to write that first) Good climbing up till the despo, back & calf busting groove which I nearly fell off/out of and generally gibbered up to an awkward final cut loose swing on a jug.
Ram MkiV - Lead O/S - 31/May/11 with Al

On Duncans gear. Awkward!
jacobjacob - Lead β - 31/May/11

NWR gives this E2 5c and Paul Williams gives it E3 6a. I don't know what to think, harder than expected but my first visit here and not my style, think Tremadog maybe? It keeps coming though you can get good rests throughout. I've done easier E3s where there's no question over the grade, I think E3 5c is maybe fair? Regardless, this is very good indeed, saves the the trickiest to the last.
