Tydomin** HVS 4c
[Characteristic Culm Coast rock formations on Tydomin - the gear is just for show as there are no worthwhile runners!, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
A spectacular pitch on good rock and good holds all the way, with enough protection from wires to keep the flutter factor manageable. Start beneath the amazing narrow wall of culm in the centre of the cliff.
Climb the heavily pock-marked wall just to the right of the arete, past a small spike runner at 8m (on the arete) to where it forks left. Continue up the face on the right past good but spaced gear to the top. Low in the technical grade. © ROCKFAX

Seconded Steve on this amazing climb, really nice climbing all the way, gear looked like it required a bit of a head game!
Jackislav - 2nd O/S - 06/Mar/15

Nice and easy but you wouldn't want to fall off! If you've got some micro cams take them or it'll be even further down.
Thinker01 - Lead O/S - 09/Aug/14 with RFWilkie, Becster

Probably more like a fluttery but very easy VS 4a/4b.

lovely climb a 3 star route IMO. run out in places so a steady leader at the grade is required.
CurlyStevo - Lead - 18/May/14 with clipskipper

Pleasant steady route with some amazing rock on the first section. Worth the trip, for sure.

Lovely route and fascinating rock. Gear OK on lower half but starts to disappear on upper part (thankfully where it starts to ease off a bit).

A 'must do' climb. Soft HVS, but v. atospheric.
ruaidh - 2nd - 14/Aug/11 with Michael

The gear is actually pretty good if a little spaced, small wires and cams useful. Technically it's no more than 4b but great rock and very enjoyable especially at high tide with big waves coming in!

Jules 210681 - 2nd - 25/Apr/11 with glenn bloomer

"Good but spaced gear" is rather inaccurate. More like "a reasonable amount of shonky gear, but not much that's very inspiring". Nice climbing though, maybe only 4b?
