85m, 2 pitches. One of the classics of the zawn which climbs the left-facing groove in the lower section of the wall. 50m. Continue traversing left from Father John to a slim leftward facing groove. Climb this (2 pegs) and the wall above (peg). Move up then left before finishing direct to e small ledge. Belay then pull out on your pre-placed rope. © ROCKFAX
P1: From the large sloping ledge you abseil to, traverse left + down along the ledge and then climb up into the left-facing groove to a peg. Continue up the groove until it peters out, then head upwards and leftwards (last few metres a bit vegetated) to a grassy belay ledge (peg hidden in the grass). P2: Pull out on pre-placed rope.

Steady climbing but takes time to find the correct line to prevent yourself from ending up in a dead-end. Brilliant adventurous climbing so close to Llandudno!

Awesome! I've been wanting to do this since seeing the photos in the Ground Up guidebook, so pleased it went off. Approach description in the Ground Up guide worked well, although the second peg in the groove is no more, and I didn't find another peg on the route until the belay ledge. Lots of 5-6m run-outs between small wires. I reckon E2 5b probably fair. Happy to provide further beta if anyone's interested.
