Can anyone suggest any crags in the Snowdonia area for kids. I want to introduce my 7 year old daughter to climbing outdoors whilst on a brief weeks stay in NW next month. Were staying on the southern edge of Cader Idris but will be happy to explore any part of Snowdonia. I'm looking for relatively short pitches with plenty of space above them to set up a top rope. Any advice appreciated, thanks.
In reply to darvill683: barmouth slabs, there is the main slabs which are pretty high single pitch(~18m?), I imagine too high although climbing the bottom half of one is a big acheivement for a little person.. however you can also scramble up easily above to shorter single pitch routes, and up above that there is slabby bouldering of various heights and difficulties with grassy landings this stuff can also be scrambled to round rh side of the crag. be warned though the walk up from the parking place is very steep up hill on a road and could be hard work if you are very little and not so into walking.
also note, like lion rock there are a lot of groups from outdoor centres there on weekdays too.
Moelwyns are good too. Lots of stuff on Clogwyn yr Oen where you can top rope the first pitch. Short walk up the reservoir road from the car park.
Also Pulpit Route on Milestone buttress if they are more confident. I think that you can escape into the gully on the right. When my children were small this was their first real climb. We just did the first pitch, I lowered them back down and then down climbed myself.
