Which quality bouldering spots in Wales would you recommend for a view to die for and/or remote from the masses?

Cheers

Rob

Crafnant and Wavelength Boulders have a pretty cracking view. Ogwen cottage boulders don't have much there but it's easy to access outside of busy times (good for a summer evening quickie) and has an epic view too, likewise sheep pen a bit further down.

As above, in The Pass, for a brilliant circuit and views. Take in The Satellites, Pieshop, Wavelength, then head on up towards Cyrn Las and The Meadow, then head right to follow your nose and discover hidden gems.

Other boulderers  thin out by Wavelength (its a solid ascent with a pad), then you’re only likely to see walkers. Brilliant views up and down the Pass, and the clanking of bumbling from the crags opposite give it and alpine feel.

Not as mountainous as some of the others but Trawsfynydd ( Carreg yr Ogof) is remote and I enjoyed the backdrop at least...

Just what I needed. Cheers to you all.

+1 for this, and the quality of climbing is xceptional.

nice spot to be with the main relatively sheltered (and wildly overhanging) problems dry, and  surrounding peaks with a dusting of snow.

Drive by wall just next to the Pillbox on the Great Orme has some good stuff between F6a+ and Fveryhard with a cracking view. The cave is always busy, but this little gem hardly ever gets any attention from what I've seen.

Sheep Pen has a pretty good view:

As for remote, the Pumlumon boulders must be a contender?
