Crag features
Two- and three-pitch routes in a superb location next to the road in a secluded valley, seven miles inland from Tywyn. [Tom Payne 3/02]

Meirionnydd guide The CC, is up to 2002 : The main addition to the face is a new E5 just right of the Diagonal to the ledge and a new E6/7 which continues direct above the ledge just left of Pink Panther

The Dark Road also has a new direct finish up rightwards at hard E66b

Access notes
Closed 1st April to 31st July due to nesting birds. Restrictions do not apply to The Bastion face, where most of the classic routes are.

The area is a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) for its mosses and other plants, and for the birds which nest there. Take care not to disturb them.
