Drws y Gwynt

Climbs 21 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude 1350m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
A small steep crag left of Clogwyn y Grochan, with clean, sound, rough rock involving some fun crack climbing. One- and two-pitch routes, up to 145ft, such as Cracked Wall (VDiff) and Too Hard For Jim Perrin (E1 5c, and it isn't). Worth diverting to.

Access notes
Directly up from the road and off to the left and above Clogwyn y Grochan, looking like a mini-Cromlech, with blocks and corners. Car parking may be a problem given how far down the Pass the crag is located.

Guidebooks
