Cyrn Las

Climbs 31 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude 450m a.s.l – Faces E

Crag features
Some fine routes a long way from the road. Great multi-pitch routes up to 740ft, including Main Wall (HS 4b), The Grooves (E1 5b), Lubyanka (E3 6a) and Long Kesh (E5 6b).

Access notes
A very, very long walk in from anywhere. Not the place to have an epic, accident or to get benighted. Head torch essential since you probably will come home in darkness anyway.

As said already, the above access description is wrong. It's up at the top of the pass. You can see the car from the crag.

Ignore the above description - its not a long walk in. steep maybe but not long.

More N than E facing, hence it's in the shade most of the day. No pegs on belay at end of pitch 2 of Main Wall (as guidebook states) but belay is still possible.

Do you have more up to date information?
