Rockfax Description
A superb ridge climb leading to a fine finish high up on the wall. Start at the base of the prominent jagged ridge running down the eastern side of the crag.
1) 20m. Head up the middle of the buttress to belay by a block on a large ledge.
2) 20m. Continue up to the large pinnacles at the top of the main ridge, belaying on the right-hand side of the last spike before the col.
3) 5m. Drop down into the col and belay (skip this belay if you are a confident leader but watch your rope work for the runners placed in the col section).
4) 15m. Climb a grassy crack to gain a leftwards-trending line leading to a superb belay on the arete.
5) 15m. Climb up the lovely slab then trend rightwards to a large sloping ledge below the final chimney.
6) 15m. Entering the chimney via the crack is something of a crux not made easier by the polish of thousands of passing climbers. The awkward section is thankfully short-lived!

Lovely! First classic Welsh multi-pitch, and it did not disappoint. Straight forward enough climbing, never short of a good hold, the exposure on 4 and 5 makes you think! Belay ledges are very good, with no shortage of good gear placements anywhere.

I led P1+2 in one long 45m pitch, Lee did the rising traverse to the tiny flake stance, I led up to the 'palatial' stance, and Lee finished the route off up the chimney. A brilliant, varied route with tons of exposure and wonderful climbing. I found the polished chimney section really tough- must work on my prehensile scrotum! Shame about the rain on the last pitch.

Traverse pitch is crazy fun, out over huge drop, but friendly climbing. Found the crack in the last pitch very awkward. Approach is long and steep up a horrible scree slope - better to take longer walk-in to the left.

Absolutely everything about this climb is what I climb for - not the grades or the gnarley grrrrrr rock climb hard core stuff- just the experience - the friends & company, the air you breathe up there the feeling of moving on rock and Llanberris, Wow, I am starting to sound ridiculously pretentious now, great route - run through pitches to link as much as possible, 1hr 25 mins not bad going - blame my bro for taking his time on the final two pitches... it's defiantly a goer for soloing.

Led pitch 2. Just easier to let the leader continue rather than to keep swapping the gear. Definitely VDiff material. People mention the chimney as a crux but this can be made much easier by removing rucksacks and hauling them up after tieing off the second and dropping a loop ideally with a crab attached. Leader then pulls the loop up. In my opinion, the hardest move was the slight balancy move onto the slab after the grassy outcrop (generally belay 3).

Brilliant multi-pitch VDiff. We did it as 5 pitches as described in my guidebook, as there was 3 of us and our rope was only 50 metres long. Pitch 3 is very exposed especially stood at the stance before pitch 5. All pretty easy apart from slightly tricky start to pitch 3 up the wall and the chimney on pitch 5 is also a bit of a maul (it is for me anyway!).

Led as three pitches. Guillamie lead 1,2 and 3 as our first. I lead 4 and 5 as our second. Finally Guillamie finished the final chimney pitch. Mostly nice but easy in the grade climbing, but with a small handful of trickier (polished?) moves that made it feel deserving. Like a bigger welsh mountain route, but smaller :)

One of the most popular mountain rock climbs in the British Isles. A much-loved classic which is starting to show its age as an established beginners rock climb - polished holds make the going harder. It ascends an easy ridge to the right of the open book crag of Dinas Cromlech, before tackling a steeper wall festooned with good holds - and finishing up an awkward chimney. Ignore the gymnasts on the blank walls of the central crag, and concentrate on enjoying the less stressful pleasures of this route. Great Day

First climbed in 1968 with Paul Chapman, then instructed pupils up the climb. Later soloed but a fall at the top would be serious. Repeated this year in May (2011) with a SDMC party. I didn't realise how good it was !
