Carreg y Foel GronGwynedd, WALES
Climbs 27 – Rocktype Welsh igneous – Altitude 430m a.s.l – Faces SW
The main crag is visible from the road with the slabs of 'tiger feet' and 'elephant crawl' on the left, a central massive detached pinnacle with the climactic route 'inspiration' and then the overhanging arete of 'sickle cell' detached off to the right.
Follow the miner's track around the left side of the crag and a second crag comes into view, overhanging wildly on the left before breaking up into a series of aretes and corners. The routes here are generally excellent although are a fair bit dirtier than the main crag as they receive a lot less traffic.

* Climbs listed in red are waiting to be checked by a crag moderator, and may not be accurate.
There is a reasonable sized car park just off the road and from here there is a well worn, if a bit muddy, footpath and also the start of the miner's track. Spoilt for choice. The crag is on access land.
