Craig Cywarch (aka Craig Cowarch) Gwynedd, WALES
Climbs 356 – Rocktype Welsh igneous – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces E
A massive complex cliff-line in a superbly quiet location. This vast rambling mountainside, interspersing sheets of rock with towering gullies and vast amounts of heather terraces, will ideally suit strong-stomached mountaineers who can brave the "full mountain day out", or canny crag rats who will find the isolated clean walls and revel in some hidden gems. The climbing varies from long rambling easy classics to marginally accessible extreme testpieces, and polish is unlikely to be a problem.
Turn off the A470 at Dinas Mawddwy and take take road toward Aber-Cywarch before following a minor road up the Cywarch valley.

At time of posting Tap Y Gigfran is effectively inaccessible due to the scramble approach to the ramp being blocked by gorse and brambles, as well as having serious fall potential.|
