Clogwyn Gafr (aka Craig Fach)

Climbs 22 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude 400m a.s.l – Faces N

Crag features
Routes up to 100ft. Only recently developed. Black-cut overhang at half height makes it look sombre. But there are beginners' climbs too. Satsuma Special (E3 5c), Sacred Idol (E3), Pulsar (E3) and The Nectarine Run (E5 6b) and Satsumo Wrestler (E6 6b) rank among the very best.

Access notes
From Pen Y Pass car park head W (N of Crib Goch). It should be the fir crag you reach.
