Clogwyn Llo (aka Cwm Glas Facet)

Climbs 29 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude 400m a.s.l – Faces NW

Crag features
Initially looks unpromising, with large ledges, but provides some good climbs at all levels with single- and muli-pitch routes up to 300ft. Probably best for Far From The Madding Throng (E2 5c), which it all is.

Access notes
Follow a track from behind Cwn Glas cottage, passing behind a ruined building and then acquires walls. At the old wire fence bear up and L to a stone wall below a broken area of minor cliffs. Above is the crag proper.
