Congl VS 4c
[Congl, Craig Rhiw Goch, 3 kb]The obvious groove/corner in the centre of the crag. The VS version heads of left near the top, on an obvious traverse, but it's much better to keep heading straight up at HVS 5b to finish. It feels much easier than the grade given in the guidebook.

*June 2011 - a few large blocks have become loose, notably on the final traverse, so take care...
