Craig Yr Wrysgan

Climbs 43 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude ? – Faces SE

Crag features
The closest crag to the car park has several pleasant routes and a fun descent!

This crag is a quiet backwater and it is easy to escape the crowds in the Ogwen and Llanberis passes.

The rock is very quartzy and can be climbed in the damp plus many routes dry quickly after any rain.

Access notes
From the car park by the disused Tan y Grisiau quarry take the path through the kissing gate, past the base of some waterfalls, onto a private tarmac track. The crag is approached via the incline through the tunnel. From here, walk back up and right towards the crag. Approximately 10 minutes.

The upper crag has now been added to the lower tier to stop duplications being added, also for conciseness.
