Crag features
Craig Y Fan, on the south slope of Bryn Y Fan just north of Llanidloes, is a small, slabby outcrop which was first climbed on in the late 1970s. Sometime later it was briefly used by a local outdoor centre for top-roping. Further development occurred in 2013-14.

This crag (and others in the area) will be fully featured in the Elenydd section of the forthcoming Climbers' Club Mid Wales guide book.

Access notes
The crag's on open access land; however the most logical access involves crossing a section of enclosed farmland with no public right of way. Access is possible on CROW land from the car park at Bwlch y Gle Dam (SN 922 881), which leads to Bryn Y Fan summit rather than to the crag which is 400m to the south and 130m lower than the trig point. The terrain from the summit to the crag is difficult (gorse, bracken, brambles and heather; no path.)

Please contact the moderator for advice re. access in advance of any proposed visit.
