Craig Ddu Gwynedd, WALES
Climbs 50 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude 181m a.s.l – Faces SW
Black rock which often looks wet (and can be slow to dry out). Steep, despite appearances. A serious cliff though the rock is fine. Multi-pitch routes up to 230ft, notably Zig-Zag (VS 4b), Black Wall (E1 5c) and Yellow Wall (E2 5b). Also a huge HS traverse, The Black Belt.
Given its position just above Beudy-Mawr near the bottom of the Llanberis Pass, car parking may be hard. Slog up from the road.

1300 m above sea level seems quite high.|
