As the title suggests, what's your recommendation on mid wales top E1-E5 routes. Could be easy or nails. Just trying to develop a tick list for the area.

Spend a couple of weeks cleaning it, then Darker Angel will fit the bill nicely!

Gwydrin on cadair idris. One of the best slab routes in wales maybe?!

I know Fiend would have some good suggestions since he’s climbed a lot here... such a shame he’s not allowed to post anymore.

That's the truth

Pretty sure he's done more around there than anyone else I know.

Maybe ask him on ukb

In fact he was just there at the weekend, when we climbed on a couple of off-the-beaten-track** Rhinnogs crags.

"Fearsome Warrior" (I think that's the name) was a worthwhile and adventurous E1 at Craig Galch (no, me neither, until Fiend suggested it).

[**Most Rhinnogs crags could do with someone beating down a track to them!]

Could you update the crag details, Coel? It currently has Craig Galch placed near the A1 in Yorkshire!

Yep I'd agree with that - Fiend would be the man to go to for this subject!  Mr Knowledge.....

I've never climbed there, but isn't there a bloke who knows a fiendish amount about the routes down that way. Can't seem to place his name, but if he could post, it would help...

That's even more lost than is usual for Rhinnogs crags!

The general approach description would be: head out into the midst of wild mid-Wales, take a teeny-weeny road, then park and take an even teenier-weenier path that soon peters out, then head across deep heather and head-high bracken, interspersed with knee-deep bog, until you eventually come to something resembling a crag.**

[**OK, I admit that this description isn't actually helpful in finding the crag, but that seems in keeping with spirit of the CC Meirionnydd guide.]

This is a thread that Fiend would be all over... If he were able.

if no one else can help, and if you can find him...
maybe you can climb with Fiend 😎

Bit of a (personal) list here, although all are <E3. Might be useful as a starter though......
