Pen-Y-Cil

Gwynedd, WALES

Climbs 17 – Rocktype Dolerite – Altitude ? – Faces SW

Crag features
A fine crag with the main pitches on solid rock, before easy loose scrambles out.

If you plan to do the E5s then take sling to lower off after the first pitches and save the faff of walking round.

The N Wales Rock parking description now seems unhelpful!

Use google maps to get you to the turning for Tir Glyn Caravan Park (postcode LL53 8DA).

Continue past until you reach two side roads on the left next to each other. Take the first of these, just before it ends there is very limited parking available by (but not blocking) a gate on the right.

I don't think the rock here is Dolerite, more like Cilan Grit.

Probably worth abseiling into here, we did. The descent is a bit sketchy.
