I'm off to Llanberis in a few weeks and I'm looking for help identifying an impressive looking swimming spot /dam which features in a bouldering vid. This should link to the right part of the video:  https://www.vimeo.com/269729958#t=2m11s If not the important section starts two minutes in. I'm not good on identifying north wales crags but I thought someone might be able to identify the crags on the other side of the valley if not the pond itself. Thanks!

Looks like it is opposite the Wasted, Llanberis,

It got a lot of attention last year:

Not sure why, there are many far better places to swim in Snowdonia...

Ok thanks. Once you google "infinity pool" it becomes a lot more obvious and it doesn't look so impressive. I was planning to go up to the wavelength boulders anyway so might see if it's accessible en route without doing any further damage.

On the south side of Llanberis Pass. Going up the path into Cwm Glas Mawr, where you cross the first wall on the way up, its directly left in the stream bed and is the dam from the mini hydro scheme.

As has already been said there are better places.

I have heard that the pool supplies drinking water to CGM and other properties below. Best to avoid using it.
