Llafur* E1 5b

Rockfax Description
A bit on an eliminate given the proximity of Dragau. Start just right of Dragau at the base of a short corner. Technical climbing leads up to a small groove through a roof. Make further tricky moves directly up this to the top. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Gain the thin crack on right and follow it to a ledge. Pull up rightward onto a slab and move up to the sentry box niche in the overhang. pull over the overhang finishing up the right- hand side of the wall. In situ abseil descent point.
Note . For some strange reason the route names and descriptions have been swopped over. Dagrau which is the right hand of the 2 routes was described as Llafur in the previous guide and Llafur was Dagrau. Very odd ?

Interesting pulls on big pinches as you come over the bulge. Crux felt a tad run out.

Did the crack got to the overhang and couldn't commit to the moves. Go back and do it again when I have head game!

Not a bad route at all
ashsleight - 2nd O/S - 11/Dec/13 with George best

Nice climb good friction could be strenuous if hang about getting out over the roof, I am 5"8 and found it no dramas
herman0055 - Lead O/S - 11/Dec/13 with ash sleight

Started up the corner of Tro, moved up the wall and went over the overlap to the left of the sentry-box. Going direct is about E3, going left and using the well-polished foothold and edge of the arête probably brings it down to HVS/E1.

Move over the overlap seemed tricky with gear quite a way below. Nice enough though
Cardi - 2nd O/S - 26/Sep/11 with Tom R

Went very direct just to make sure not accused of moving R at overhang (as per guidebook). Not clear how much movement permissible without reducing grade so none at all permitted. Very artificial.
