Fun climbing and great to be back on the rock with Dave after his recovery from serious illness.

Good slab climb on sound clean rock. Quiet - well worth the 1/2 hour walk from Pen-y-pass.

Not entirely sure which route I climbed, since I was following the topo in North Wales Rock with only shows one route, and has it as a Severe. 4a was about right for the line I took though.

Nice delicate, balancey route made more 'exciting' due to strong gusty winds!

PeteWilson 22/Jul/12 2nd O/S

another very windy ascent of this route, excellent rock on an excellent slab though!

Amazing rock, nice long runouts, never too easy or too hard-felt like being in the middle of nowhere with warm sun on the crag and a soft breeze. Great end to a fantastic first weekend in North Wales.

Beautiful deserted red slab seamed with cracks and holds, tucked away 30 mins from Pen-Y-Pass. Fantastic.
