Llech Ddu (Black Slab)

Climbs 44 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude ? – Faces N

Crag features
Llech Ddu is a magnificent crag of great character. Complex rock architecture makes the structure difficult to comprehend at first acquaintance. Multi-pitch routes to 140 metres. Note that all in-situ pegs should be backed up! They tend to be rusted to crumbly rubbish. Why not try your hand at the 450ft, six pitch *** E1 "The Groove"?

Access notes
Approach as for Ysgolion Duon, but striking up the screes to the base of the crag after about one hour.
