Climbed on a fine day in September- were the only climbers on the crag-(not counting the 8 ravens) 10 great pitches/800 foot of lovely easy climbing-must rank as my best multi pitch experience.

Lliwedd has arguably the best (certainly the longest)mountaineering routes in England and Wales. Plenty of holds on the classic routes, but can be awkward in the wet. Old-fashioned and uncrowded - great!
