mabinogion** E2 5c

Rockfax Description
A great route, where you can see how the glacier gouged out the pass. Starting just right of the main crack, gain the crack, following it until you can make a bold reach out left to a pocket. Move up to a ledge and make one more tricky move up the groove above. © ROCKFAX

Felt nails! But were both knackered and it was hot!
chris wyatt - 2nd O/S - 22/Jun/14 with rich

Failure on the very last move. Tired. Great little route though. I was very impressed with my cat-like jump down onto the sloping ledge after my first attempt at the top!

Felt quite hard, possibly due to the fact that it was dark and I didn't see the face holds. Excellent climbing.

Wicked compact climb. Reminded me of Desperation, or some such on the grit.
Alex Mason - Solo O/S - 23/May/10

Quite serious if you can't place the top runner. Easy to do with a bit of lateral thinking.

Was raining so though we'd have a go at a hard climb for our level, managed to climb it, got hands on top but grass was so wet i kept slipping, going back in september for the lead. Nice climb
