Craig Y Tonnau

Gwynedd, WALES

Climbs 20 – Rocktype Pillow lava – Altitude 248m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
A pleasant small crag, with unusual rock. Its South aspect, low altitude and shelter from the forest can make climbing viable here when the mountain crags are impossible-the same features make it ideal for midges however, avoid the crag on still days!

Many of the routes are overgraded in the CC guide, in particular Dentist's Slab is easy V Diff (perhaps only Diff), and Brewer's Troupe is Very Severe 4c. Some of the Severes (especially Robbin's Nest) would only get V Diff on other crags in the guidebook.

The less-than-vertical, well featured rock makes this a climb-anywhere crag, leading to quite a few claims for new routes (here and elsewhere). Do not be disappointed if yours does not appear here, especially if it was climbed after 2005.

Access notes
Situated in a private forest; the owner encourages public access. The descent to the crag from the ridge at the west end is getting eroded and can be muddy, an easier-angled approach can be made from the east end of the crag-easier to find when leaving! Move out of the power line firebreak here

Fun little crag, though the walk-in is pretty overgrown. Good grippy rock with lots of holds, but gear's pretty sparse.
