Pen Tyrau - Hooked on Passion Buttress © GrahamUney

Crag features

A short series of buttresses facing North West on the tip of Arenig Fawr, with a few very appealing pocketed walls that catch the evening sun but need dry conditions. Easy access and worthwhile in summer.

Approach notes

As for Daear Fawr: Park opposite the old quarry on the minor road running parallel to the A4212. Walk up the steady quarry track until opposite the crag, cross the wall and stream and scramble up. 15 mins.
