Craig Pant Ifan (Tremadog)

Gwynedd, WALES

Climbs 161 – Rocktype Dolerite – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
The crag that is always warm and often dry when clouds hang over the Llanberis Pass a few miles away. Many routes in the low Extreme grades, including the classic Silly Arete (E3 5c) as well as plenty for the VS leader to go at. Very little below VS, but the other Tremadog crags have plenty of those.

Access notes
Often hard to identify routes from the road due to trees. Walk off the top rather than abseiling, to save the trees.

don't try to walk off to the right looking up. chest high brambles and no path. no path to the left from falcon/vulcan area so abseil is the only viable option for descent.
rurp - 16/Oct/12

DO NOT abseil off if possible/practical. It's lazy, antisocial and erodes the trees.
victim of mathematics - 03/Sep/12

abseil off if possible to prevent erosion of the paths

I don't believe this is Dolerite. More likely to be Micro-gabbro with Mica schist at the base. Dolerite is a term over used in outdated surveys.
