Cae DuGwynedd, WALES
Climbs 94 – Rocktype Greywacke – Altitude ? – Faces W
This is a great place to hone your technique and develop power as slopey rock and directional holds abound. If you are just starting out or looking for a chilled day, don't let this put you off since the area excels in the friendly range of V0- to V3. Also, the beach setting creates a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
The crags are tidal and the rock is washed clean daily however, the pebbles under the problems are sifted and rearranged by the tides to create new challenges or occasionally make some problems easier. The grades given therefore are only approximate.

Accessible 5 hours either side of low tide.
Pay 1£ at the farm to park, shut the gate behind you and leave your car beyond the bridge. The North end of the crag (Area 1) can be reached by walking down the beach or walk on top of the crag for about 400m to an old quarry path and follow it down to area 4.
