Carnedd Y Filiast (Cairn of the Greyhound Bitch)

Gwynedd, WALES

Climbs 32 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude 631m a.s.l – Faces SE

Crag features
Vast expanse of layered slab, giving rise to some exceptionally long, easy mountain routes; some giving over 1000ft of continuous climbing. Many routes have a serious feel due to the almost complete lack of protection and total isolation. A place for those seeking solitude or an escape from the bustle of more modern crags.

Access notes
Approach directly up the hillside from the old Nant Ffrancon road. Once in the cwm the ridge opposite the slabs provides a good position from which to familiarise onself with the complex layout.
