The photo of the approach in the Rockfax book has a sign in it - that sign is no longer present, but the approach is still easy to find.

Conwy Buttress quite vegetated in April 2014 when we visited - limited climbs easily available

Access advice: from the Pont y Pair car park follow the road up until, after a 100m or so, you reach a sharp right turn (residential road shown as a cul-de-sac). After about 100m this becomes a tarmac Forestry Commission road which soon turns sharp left past three houses on the right. After these take a right on a rough forest road then a footpath towards Pen-yr-Allt. Take a right by a seat and Main Cliff is above you.
