Only the new developments are described in any detail; refer to the CC Meirionnydd guide for details of the older routes.
Note that the crag is incorrectly named both on OS maps and in Meirionnydd (2002), the correct name being Carreg yr Ogof ("Rock of the Cave" or "Cave Rock". The correct name will be used in the new CC Mid Wales guide.) Additionally, all the routes here are confusingly described from right to left in the current guide but here they are correctly described from left to right. Also, following a visit by the CC guide book team, there's been some grade revision regarding five of the original climbs, resulting in one downgrade and four upgrades.
Climbs at this crag
The crag is on CROW land and is located just west of Trawsfynydd, which is easily accessed from the A470.
Either park by the church in Trawsfynydd (very limited parking), or better, use the main village car park. From the church follow the sign-posted public footpath (on the right when facing the church.) Go through a metal gate and cross the field heading towards a wooden stile. Cross this and turn left to where the footpath crosses over a wall; then follow a vague path across boggy farmland in the direction of the lake until the main crag comes into view on the right. (Approximately 10 minutes from the church.)
