[Dusk in the Llanberis Pass, 1 kb]69m, 3 pitches. A fantastic excursion through the black walls of Craig Ddu, facing the challenge of the central and tallest section of wall. 1) 4c, 18m. Start just to the right of the overhang above the start of Zig Zag. Climb the black wall past small ledges for 9m. Step right and head up the wall to a block belay on the right. 2) 5b, 25m. Climb the steep wall on the left behind the belay and gain a rightward-trending rampline. Follow this until it butts up against a capping roof. Make an exciting pull through the left side of the roof and climb straight up to a ledge. Wander rightwards along the ledge to a block belay. 3) 4b, 20m. Step back left and climb the groove above the belay to the roof, which is taken via the large shattered weakness. © ROCKFAX

Sarah Black - AltLd O/S - 22/Jun/14 with Paul Black

I got the easy last pitch, misinterpreted the guide and went way too far left.

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 28/May/12

Starting direct gives a good route with interesting climbing on all three pitches. Led P2.
Andy Clarke - AltLd O/S - 25/May/12 with Dale

A very good route, I had the 1st and 3rd pitch Andy got the crux. I find this crag very compact with not much gear, but still safe anuf. I joked around with Andy on the crux not much style haha he climbed it very well I can talk later on in this wkend my style was poor ;)

Direct variant, as per NWR. P1&3. Very good. The 'easy' pitches, weren't that easy, and quite serious. Nice crux moves on P2.
catt - AltLd O/S - 25/Apr/11 with Hardin

Direct start, not the one up the rubbish looking grass. lead first pitch, Tom did second. Then abbed off as there looked like rain.
