Llechog (Cwm Clogwyn)

Climbs 30 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude 200m a.s.l – Faces NE

Crag features
A high slab which doesn't suffer much drainage (unlike many crags in the area). Variable quality rock, but the best ones are very compact and sound. All routes are multi-pitch, up to 410ft. Worth visiting for Resurrection (HVS 5a**) - but you don't have to tell them which crag you were on in the pub, just say you did Resurrection.

Access notes
Take the Snowdon Path from the Rhyd Ddu car park; or Ffridd Uchaf. This goes along the top of the cliff - allow about one hour. (Headtorch for the walk back.)

Alternatively take the Snowdon Ranger track and Cwm Clogwyn - longer, wetter, but takes you to the bottom of the crag.
