[Central Route, Red Slab, 2 kb]This delightful route takes the best line of clean rock. The climbing is relatively easy for the grade but it is thin on gear in places 1) 35m. Climb direct up the seam 2m left of the right-facing corner of the Underlap 2) 40m. Continue in the same line as the angle gradually eases towards the top. © ROCKFAX

Total Disaster. Thought a nice easy diff on gritty rock would be a good wet weather option so set off down the old Nant peris road. 45mins approach? We didn't mess around and it took us 2 hours+. Horrible slog up Boggy, slippy, steep, loose ground, which gets worse the nearer the crag you get. Got to the route and it was raining heavily by then. Covered in lichen, litterally slippy as ice, zero protection, broken, vegitated, crap. How did this crag get in the Ground up Guide? Turned round and took 2 and a half hours to tackle the dangerous descent. Don't think I'll be returning anytime soon! Maybe a good day could be had in perfect conditions, but there are 100's of better options in the area
