Access notes
Best approached from Croesor where there is a large free car park. Follow the Cnicht path out of the village to the highest point on the track. Continue downhill and after the concrete bridge take a small opening in the wall on the right. Follow a faint path diagonally up leftward to arrive suddenly at the crag. For routes on left of crag go over the col. This avoids the unpleasant large boulders.

Yes - in the 2000 guide topo p168, Hong is actually number 1 and Kong is number 2. The other routes are shifted down two numbers accordingly.

Superb peaceful little crag - South facing out look with fine views and excellent friction. The 2000 guide topo (page 185) is incorrect and needs thought. Route 1 and 2 should be 7 & 8 maybe. Sheep Tics are a plenty in the long Bracken Beware. Therefore Winter Rock climbing recommended. Access is easy up a cobbled track through an Iron Gate and then break out left through the second hole in the wall. (20 to 30 minutes)
