Iain Thow 25 Dec, 2018 Solo A climb to counter the gluttony. A bit damp but still decent friction. Not Diff but still some awkward moves in places you wouldn't want to fall off, making it much too serious for the Cicerone guide's Grade 2. I've done it quite often, both on my own and with people of widely varying abilities and would put it somewhere on the boundary of Grade 3 and Moderate (as per the CC Ogwen guide).

Astilath 3 Jun, 2018 Solo The rightmost edge with the quartz is gorgeous. Otherwise kind of simple scrambling. 2 is probably a generous grade but obviously someone got scared on it. Found a thoroughly stuck cam (2017 dated) in one of the upper slabs. Wasnt even a particularly serious spot! Completely overcammed and wedged so theres in situ protection! Next group can take one less cam!

lithos 3 Dec, 2017 - 2nd go. found it his time. The weather was ok, damp but calm and not too cold.Moved together as a 3, belaying occasional serious sections. I think we maximised the rock and minimised the grass but there is a lot of choice. Fun. Walked back via the quarries - which was quite far!

Simon Caldwell 21 Jan, 2017 Solo Long approach round the bottom of the hill from Deiniolen (not recommended!). Nice scramble, quite serious in places. In the sun for the top half, but didn't make a lot of difference given the cold wind! Weather was so good we finished by walking over Foel Goch to Y Garn and back again over Elidir Fawr. Mod as per Ogwen guide, or 3S as a scramble.

size9hex ?Sep, 2008 Lead O/S Technically easy climbing in rock shoes (probably harder in boots), but very sparse gear. Perhaps better to solo if all party members are happy at the grade. One pitch involved untying, and then lengthening the 50m rope with slings to reach a belay. 60m rope would have been just enough.
