Dramatic sea crashing in with exciting climbing in fantastic weather. Almost felt like I was at sea whilst I was looking west.Dave Almond - AltLd - 14/Sep/14 with Dave Garry

What a day! Showery forecast so left Birmingham at 11am without much hope of getting anything done. On/off rain until the Beddgelert area. Every car in Wales seemed to decide to form traffic jams around Llangollen, Pwllehil and Abersoch so didn't get to Cilan Uchaf until just before 5pm. Started drizzling as we were about to ab in but decided to go ahead anyway. Fortunately it was just a passing shower and in any case most of P1 would probably stay dry in light rain. I started P1 at 6.45pm, head torches at the ready. Phil started P2 at 8.30pm, daylight fading, head torch on. I finished at 9.15pm, shortly before it got completely dark. Fantastic 50m traverse on P1 - one of the best pitches I've ever led. Mostly fairly steady but with a few tricky moves, particularly to get round the bulge and the corner just beyond. Easy for E3 5c, perhaps should just be a hard E2 5c. Would be very exciting without a double rack of cams - think I only got 2 or 3 nuts in on the whole pitch. No pegs on the half way belay but several good wire placements so a nice hanging belay. P2 is enjoyable but only a couple of hard moves, about E1. Stake belay at the top. Best ab in is at the far left hand side (looking out to sea) as there are some decent anchors there. A friendly ab of less than 10m gets you to a large ledge, from where an easy scramble gets you to the starting ledge for P1.

6.30pm kick off meant headtorches onto helmets at start. 1st pitch very intimidating but very easy and 4*! Looked longer than 60m - turned out to be around 55m? Good sea charging into the cave. Led P2 very easy, E1 5b, but a bit run out. Superb route.

lead main pitch, very easy for E3. The ab is a great anchor, NWR makes it sound like its terrible.
