[Cantre'r Gwaelod,VS 4c, Moel y Gest.
Kev Davies climbing, 3 kb]34m. A good route on excellent rock which should have been given at least a star in the new guide. Start below the left-hand of the two downward pointing spikes. Climb to the spike and pull up onto the upper slab, move up leftward (thin tape on flake) and back right to the niche where a tricky move gains the ledge. The thin continuation crack has now been cleaned (Aug 2010).

Very nice climbing over the spike with good gear and positive holds on the wall above. Slopey topout is delicate

Nice route, worthy of a star. Great to climb this, I had just been reading about the Cantre'r Gwaelod story of the town that was swept into the sea in Cardigan Bay.

Deserves a star for sure.

The 1st pitch is excellent. Led the very easy 2nd pitch of this. Not sure if it's even a pitch as is quite broken up with grass ledges and such.

Had a top rope attached on a loose line, still made all the lead moves the same just a little peace of mind for the last climb of the day.
