[Sol climbing Antur Madog, 3 kb]Start as for Cantre Gwaelod but at the bulge enter the groove on the right. Make a couple of precarious moves up this to reach the upper wall. Very eliminate and difficult to pick an independent line. Soft for the grade.

Nice climbing and good gear, took the fang direct. thought it was easier than E1. Slopey topout is tricky.

Easy E1 5b one move wonder passing spike into the groove. u might be close to the floor if you fall off at spike though

Really nice route, good moves and reasonable gear. Fair at E1 5b.

Only one softish 5b move, but some nice climbing before and after.
Andy Clarke - Lead O/S - 14/Aug/10 with Alex

This felt really easy, but then again I had just done shiver my timbers which was flakey and had no gear. The line seems a bit artificial but its a good climb. HVS 5a??
