Craig y Castell (Tremadog) Gwynedd, WALES
Climbs 61 – Rocktype Dolerite – Altitude 250m a.s.l – Faces SW
Some great classics in the lower grades on perfect rock; tends also to be quiet.

(Might be a bit less than 250m above sea level! chrishedgehog)
Park in Tremadog town square; or at the intersection of the A4085 and A498, in the short lane leading to a school. Do not block the lane with cars. The crag is a short walk from the lane.

The approach descriptions in the guidebook have been rendered out of date by the construction of a new hospital. The approach now seems to follow a track along the boundary of the hospital nearest to the school, then up the woods and scree to the R.
The guidebook descriptions of the approaches to Cheap Trick etc are hopeless as none of the mentioned features are visible.
