[Richard Toon on Aura, 3 kb]The finest route on the crag, and one of the best E2s in North Wales. Start in a small damp gully 1) 5b, 45m. Climb straight up to a small triangular overlap at 10m. Climb diagonally left to reach a crack and then trend back right to the base of the long slanting crack. Make a tough move to gain the crack proper and follow it to a belay ledge 2) 12m. Scramble onto Bilberry Ledge. © ROCKFAX

Great route on an awesome crag but the approach is a ball ache! Note to self: next time, opt for the double abseil rather than the walk. A steep and uncompromising line, sustained but has some rests and the holds are generally good if a bit dirty (needs more traffic!). I thought the hardest bit was moving left then right round the rooflet as that was strenuous. The moves right into the crack were more technical. Interest was maintained going up the crack. With the Pinnaclissima finish and the big walk in and out, it was a great mountain day out. The swirling low clouds added character but it was still very warm. Can't believe this isn't in Hard or Extreme rock, it's really good!
