Though it looks and feels a bit like a path through the jungle, this route gives very good climbing, which is worthy of Classic V Diff status. The rock is excellent, the gear good, and there are several spicy moves which make you think "V Diff?" Oh, and the path leads right to the start with no jungle bashing.

pog100 - AltLd O/S - 26/Jan/08 with Reaver2k

First real multipitch (above 2 pitches on grit). Really enjoyed it! We'd spent the day driving around, looking at places that looked really wet and in mist. Tremadog was the last shot before we were heading back to the campsite or a quick boulder on RAC boulders. Luckily the closer we got to it the sunnier it got! Pulled up into the mud, wheels spinning and all! Walked up over the rocky ground and set up at the bottom. A few nerves because of the new rock but after a bit of faffing the first pitch went with ease. Got abit confused near the top, whether to try go direct over the pinnicle or to go around the right of it. Couldn't see over the pinnicle so I went round the right of it and belayed from behind as suggested. Then Dad fancied a pitch, easier than trying to block lead on first multipitch! He struggled once or twice but no more than I did! A couple of quite strenuous moves for VDiff, such as the mantle onto the ledge below the crack and the top move of the crack. Followed him up to find him belaying in dirt with a shoddy belay lol. Ohwell! 3rd pitch was my lead and could see right from the beginning it was going to be beautiful! Bridge up the groove/crack, then when you can see a flake move out right, you wont regret it! Out very exposed on the front of the buttress in a warmish sun, heaven. Some really nice moves up through the flakes including one with a 4a move (felt like it to me) and finally reach over the top. Absolutely wonderful! Got progressively windier as we went up! Hope Dad enjoyed the final pitch as much as I did! Then a pleasent walk back down to collect bags. Drove back towards the campsite and stopped off at RAC boulders. Did every problem I could find (which looked possible to me) bar the one round the left and boulder. Really lovely rock, and almost all the problems were superb between 4a-5b! Did the whole back side of the right hand boulder, including the steep sit start flake, blankish looking slab with a mono, and the arete. Then a couple of rock-over problems on the block behind the left hand boulder! Lovely.

Nic laed1/3. Bob pitch2. Nice climb- with great position on top of pitch3- make sure you traverse out rightwards for the best position.

Enjoyed this climb a lot. Well worth heading down the road from the normal well trodden tramadog routes. A couple of tricky moves (for me) on the 2nd and 3rd pitches, and I even found a lost friend with the help of a nut extractor. Not sure about the decent route. We were definitely NOT on the right path down.

Very pleasant excursion on good rock. Good alternative location to the obvious big mountain routes in Snowdonia.
