Clogwyn y Grochan

Gwynedd, WALES

Climbs 89 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude 215m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
A long crag with many excellent multi-pitch routes, and some single-pitch gems, up to 370ft. Beware vagabond suicidal sheep and slippery non-pitches; many people abseil off after a couple of pitches as some routes deteriorate in character towards the end.

Usually less crowded than the Cromlech on any given day, with enough offerings in the VS-HVS range to accommodate plenty of parties.

Routes to do include Phantom Rib (VS 4c), Spectre (HVS 5a), Slape Direct (E1 5c) and for the tough the fierce testpiece Cockblock (E5 6b).

Access notes
Easily reached up the scree slopes from the road; the main problem is finding somewhere to park in the Pass.
