Crag features
This crag is incorrectly listed under Gogarth and Anglesey- it is in Llanberis Pass.

This area icorporates the ridge and rocks running up the hill near the end of Lyn Peris to the big vegitated cliff above Cwm Eilir. This are is an old slate mine. Craig Y Ddol takes little drainage to be in optimum conditions however its shade nature means that it maybe damp for some time after rain.

excellent Crack climing, all single pitch, use big Cams. decent from climbs is by the grassy slopes to the right.

Access notes
Small layby just pas the Vaynol Arms pub on the same side of the road, we parked here. 2-5 minute walk along the wide hard standing footpath, past a small culvert at ground level and Craig Y Ddol appears on your right. It is on page 342 of the Llanberis Topo (2009)
