good climbing, the crux is easy, if you figure it out
Climbed this really well, smooth movement and first time placements. Happy. Should've got on Rimsky after Alex but was saving myself for the big day after which never came.

Felt quite hard for E3.

Soft and rambly

Thought the top would be the hardest bit to lead, short but intense.

Found the climbing quite sequency (managed to keep getting the wrong sequence all the way up!) and technical but not too tricky, though the end was pretty steep! Gear didn't look that convincing on it but a cool route none the less.

I lead this the day before, going right from low in the initial crack to an obvious spike and up and left from there. That was pretty hard to read...maybe e3/4 5c/6a and not the line (I presume). Saw the pictures of people on the routes in the 2 guides and realised they'd gone up the crack for a few moves and then up to the ledge. Seconded it that way today and it's 5b that way. The cc llanberis description is just a bit confusing considering it mentions a spike and there's a really obvious spike further out right. Not pokey or contrived as it says on the description here. A 1 or 2 star route well worth doing and a good warm up for the harder routes.

Initially put off by the mixed feedback. However, once you suss the right line (don't climb to the end of the initial crack) and find the two bomber wires it's fine. Good moves across to the arete and up.
really good climb. 5bish first crux then a rest then 5c crux. pretty well protected. i got pretty pumped at the top, first welsh E3.
Whats all the fuss about? there's two big rests on the route after the two hard sections. The first hard bit is ok, bout 5b/5c with a reach, the 'crux' felt really straight forward and well protected, i didn't even find the 1.5 cam slot as mentioned but there's a bomber number 4 just where you want it. E2 5c

Nails if you follow the exact guidebook line to the spike and back left at the start - felt like E3 6a. The rest wasn't as scary as I was expecting. Shouldn't this be in the Hidden Wall Section?

Great route, crux section is a bit insecure and airy but gear seemed bomb for the 'slopey guppy' section
am really in 2 minds about this route: i rarely onsight E3 as a warm up yet did so on this 2 years ago. then today i just couldnt commit on lead to last moves and had thoughts of a groundfall if my good nut should rip. i see Alex's comments too and, from his log, he knows what hes up to. all quite weird. the combination of nut, friend and small friend in slot on left all however probably do make this E3 (E2 even?) and no more: 1 delicate move by gear after a stand up rest.
strange one this! started RK and got rail but decided i needed / wanted small cams. tried to finish on EGD but was quite casual and skipped / forgot about the cam placement. then had a bit of a moment mid-crux and decided to reverse and lower. didnt really 'set' myself properly for either RK or EGD - poor but insightful

Took over from ben, terrifying. Sketchy gear after initial crack traverse, which gets no better once you move up to the slopey guppie move onto the top, thought i was gunna deck from near the top on slopey stretchy moves. (just read other comments wtf?)

First E3, probably only E2 aswell. But I got up!
a quality pitch. a friend 2 (wild country) will suffice for the friend placement (referred to in north wales rock) and theres a good nut above this anyway (it can be placed from same position)
