36m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Superb and steep climbing through the imposing yellow wall.
1) 16m. Scramble up the right-hand side of the huge grassy rock-triangle to an ample block-belay.
2) 4b, 22m. Climb a groove to the large overhanging tooth. Make an exposed step right to gain the base of a continuation groove. Follow this nearly all the way to the top until a step left gains the straight-forward finish up the wall. © Rockfax

Soloed the first pitch up to the big block, very easy. Second pitch lovely moves up the corner.

As mentioned before, effectively a 1 pitch climb. But what an excellent one! A lot easier than it looks from below, felt more like HS (although gear gets more sparse after the corner).

Really a single-pitch climb, with a scramble to the base. But you start high, steep juggy moves into the groove, good gear, then high step left onto the arÍte, then it's a ladder. The gear gets worse, but the holds get bigger as you ascend.

scrambled first pitch. lots of lovely jugs. great views at the top of llyn peris and sunset.

djones66 30/Jun/14 Lead O/S

A really good pitch but you have to work for it, meaning that for what is really a 1-pitch easy route at a 'roadside crag' it has a proper mountaineering feel to it. Beware the slippery grass slopes on the approach! The abseil will raise the pulse rate, too.
