Y Gilfach** VD
80m, 5 pitches. The Nook. A good technical exercise up the obvious v-corner on the right of the triple rib buttress. It can be approached by the first two pitches of Romulus (and Babylon) and a little slab, or by grass on the right. A good expedition on a wet day. 1.) 10m, starting from the lowest rocks go up a triangular grass corner. 2.) 20m, climb the steep corner for a few metres and then traverse easily up left to a small cave under the overhanging foot of the rib. 3.) 20m, go out diagonally right over slabs to a belay where the corner steepens. 4.) 20m, the vertical corner 5.) 10m, easy climbing to the top. The V groove on the right hand side of the crag
