35m. Move up into the recess and follow it up traverse left to gain the base of the slab. Move diagonally up right to a triangular niche at the bottom right of the white slab (possible belay). Step left and climb the bold white slab to the ledge known as Y Borfa (The Pasture).

Good incut holds make the climbing steady, but the route is not a good one for new leaders as the gear is sparse and not always obvious

Led P1 and P2. Why this gets 1 star who knows? Thought the slab was brilliant - amazing rock and good but slightly spaced gear, steady lead required. The corner on P2 is great: tricky moves and good gear.

A lovely climb for the unusual nature of the rock. Becomes increasingly quartzlike on pitch 2. Lovely pockets, small and delicate, intricate gear. The line becomes obvious. Good views to South/SouthWest. A delight for the grade. Finished up Honeysuckle crack for complete contrast.
