Friog Slate Quarries

Gwynedd, WALES

Climbs 12 – Rocktype Slate – Altitude 50m a.s.l – Faces NE

Crag features
Two quarry tiers. The Upper has three routes; two E1s with home made bolts and trad gear and the other an E36a/F6b+ with good staples. All climbs finish at the same lower off.

The lower tier is split into a slab and steep headwall, all routes having good staples. There is one scrappy VS with two old rusty pegs to the right of the clean rock.

Hi James , I hope to re-bolt the top tier and " The hard boiled wonderland " on the left of the lower tier and maybe add anew line left again ; waiting to hear from the BMC re provision of bolts
