Good fun. Wind was blowing a real Hoolie, so moved together after the Climbs, and used odd bits of gear to avoid being blown off. Reckon it could be soloed on a calmer day

Moved together, i led to the table gap, stephen led to the top. Took just over an hour, the clouds rolled in it was brilliant.
George_Surf - AltLd O/S - 01/Sep/13 with Stephen Keyes

The VDiff pitches are very straightforward despite the damp and slippery rock. Finding the start is not so easy. Fun day out.
Trevers - AltLd - 22/Aug/13 with wjcdean

Killer approach but probably worth it. Struggled to find route start but after that was okay. Down climb off the table was pretty amusing. Hellishly loose rock at the beginning of the arete.

Mr Christian - AltLd O/S - Jun/13 with chris p duck

Think we largely did the right route this time. Pretty easy for the grade. The large grassy rising traverse was pretty gearless tho. Not pleasant. Bit of a scrappy climb all in.
mattrm - Lead O/S - 25/May/13 with Darren Ross

and Aaron. not sure the start was 100% correct but still a good route. quite a few pitched then moved together sort of on the final few pitches
Run_Ross_Run - AltLd - 25/May/13 with MattM

WOW!! what a classic and brilliant route! The start was fun as if you approach the crag via the scree slope instead of coming up from the lake you can read the route start into any number of places on the crag, we were eventually guided to the foot of the route and the true start by a couple of other guys who were doing routes close by. Whilst looking and waiting for the start 2 girls beat us to the crag foot and started off up the wrong route thinking the same as us... they were heading off up an E2! Around midway up P2 we heard a very interesting bird making a single screech/ping sound similar to that of a smoke alarm with a flat battery.. no idea what it was but it was loud! There was also a cuckoo in the valley below that was singing all day long! Once at/on the table rigging a belay was interesting as there seems little to rig from/off, from here we went off up the Cyfrwy Arete (other writeup). A very good route and my first multi-pitch lead and first multi-pitch with Toni! :-)
doughobbs - Lead O/S - 06/May/13 with Antoinette Wintin

Guided Joe. 4 pitches to the table (p2 nice corner) and then 3 pitches and some moving together from the table. Excellent climbing, a bit loose in places. p2 and p5,p6,p7 are great. Some varied climbing; steep walls, a corner, aretes and spikes. Topped out a 9pm to a perfect sunset! Ran down in 30 mins.

Done in B2s. After a fairly dull/threatening clouds ascent to the start of table direct we followed on after James led Rose & Helen. Quite damp and slimy on the Table Direct route but lovely & dry (and in some sunshine) for the final part of the upper arete just prior to the main scramble. Awesome route & views!

A moment to myself. Amazing, the effect of no rope - can only have taken 20minutes max! Final steep wall after pinnacle nearly psyched me but pushed on.

Led the whole thing in big boots - loved it. Have to say that if you tackle the steep wall above the Table and the other steep section a little higher - leftwards leaning runnel - then I reckon that the arete is definitely VDiff at least.

davidbeynon - AltLd O/S - 25/Jul/10 with rob

Easy climb even when wearing big boots and a backpack, but not one to get complacent on as it's a very long way down. Imagine it would be a bit trickier in wet weather. Good fun though and an excellent place for a first attempt at multi pitching.

colina - 2nd - 18/Oct/09 with liz matt

Superb day out. Approach from car park opposite telephone box at 698153, up Pony path, branch left at cross paths near wall at 696142, to traversing path which brings you up under the north side of east ridge above Llyn y Gadair (go round the boulder fields, it's much easier). 3 long pitches to the table, 1 above the table then a scramble, walk to the summit, back down the main ridge to the Pony Track. Took minimal rack of wires and hex's.There's a bit of ab tat on a spike at the start of the pitch above the table, this takes you down to a horrendous looking screen.
