75m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A stellar line up this wall gives something of a safe adventure. Start below a bolted groove.
1) 7a, 25m. Climb the groove past many bolts. When the holds run out, make a move right onto the blank wall. A crucial foothold here can remain damp, but the bolt can provide aid past it. Regain the groove above and pull onto the ledge to belay.
2) 6b, 12m. A short pitch that heads up and right, past bolts, to a second groove.
3) 6c, 25m. The second groove looks just as hard as the first, but is a little easier. As with the first pitch, a step right bypasses a blank section before regaining the groove again and following it to the belay below a final dolerite slab.
4) 6b, 12m. Follow the bolts up the slab via some quartz pockets. Belay off fence posts and a thread. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
An awesome 4 pitch slate adventure from the very bottom of the ‘Twll Mawr’ hole topping out on the viewing platform adjacent to the track. The route follows an impressive and awe-inspiring (read - intimidating!) line of grooves and pocketed dolerite. The route can be accessed through the Twll Mawr / Peregrine Wall Tunnels and walking down the scree slope to the bottom of the hole, or alternatively a multiple abseil if you have a spare rope. Start just left of Running Scared F7c+ by an obvious and well bolted groove.
Pitch 1 -25m (7a) the obvious well bolted groove defined by a blank slab / wall on its right. When the holds run out make a rightwards move onto the slab followed by some more technical moves to regain the groove (crux). Belay on the grassy Ledge above.
Pitch 2 – 12m (6b+) the pitch that joins the two grooves has a technical and precarious (fall offable!) crux. Continue upwards / rightwards to gain the belay at the base of the 2nd groove.
Pitch 3 – 25m (6c+ / 7a) the second intimidating groove pitch similar to the crux on the first pitch when the holds run out make a rightwards move onto the slab followed by some more technical moves to regain the groove (crux). Continue up the groove which looks desperate but climbs more easily to a belay where the groove ends and the dolerite slab begins.
Pitch 4 – 12m (6b) a change of character and rock type for the final well positioned pitch, climb the black dolerite slab via some great quartz pockets to thankfully gain the ‘viewing’ ledge above. Use a thread + Bolt for a belay and RELAX!

NOTE: If you've enjoyed any of the bolted routes in Twll Mawr please consider donating to the North Wales Bolt Fund :-)

Ed Houghton 26 Aug, 2017 AltLd dog P1 - Fell once at crux, then finished clean to belay. Lowered down to let Nick lead and then seconded clean after him no problem. Soft for 7a, just one hard move at crux. But definitely easier if tall (I'm 6'2 and could just reach the teensy crimp without needing the crap foot above the bolt). P2 - Lead clean - no way 6b, easily 6c! Short pitch but the crux pull was harder than any move on the 7a pitch. P3 - 2nd dog. Nearly clean but Nick shouted something about the rope just when I was on the crux - which is a really awkward clip (unclip on 2nd) and it knocked me right off my game! I yelled 'WHAT?? IS IT SAFE???', while holding on for dear life. Turned out there was no danger but I'd lost my focus and had to sit on the rope. Tip - the clip isn't so awkward if you look up and go a tad further... P4 - Lead clean - more like 6b+. Nice finish, spectacular finishing belay - Snowden to the side in the distance, the Quarryman opposite and a great view of Twll Mawr. A really good outing. Will do again as a warm up for one of the longer Twll Mawr sport routes methinks.

Richardlake 25 Aug, 2017 AltLd O/S Pitch 2 is not 6b. The move out of the crack upwards onto the hanging blocks is as hard as anything on the first pitch and the hanging blocks have some loose parts that should be nice hand and foot holds. Takes away from some of the magic of the other three pitches. We thought the 3rd pitch was more sustained and difficult than the first, with two clear tricky strong cruxes. Guess its all subjective though. Amazing route...

countchalkula 28 May, 2017 Lead Lead everything clean first go, except for when a hold broke in my hand on p3. It's a little easier now, as the hold was atop a little pillar, which broke, meaning the hold is lower and easier to reach! Couldn't be bothered to go back down for the clean RP. Annoying! But a great route. A little soft, I'd say. Great fun.

Psyched for Jamie to get the whole thing clean! The grove is stellar, and quite soft for 7a, extremely well bolted as well. Been meaning to do this for a while now and I can say, it was totally worth it

Never noticed the bolts changed till past the hard smooth wall with square block. By then it was to late so I moved right to the top of the 3rd pitch belay on SMBH and then finished that route. It should be a link up cause it was brilliant. Will have to come back for the 2nd and 3rd pitches. Quality

colin struthers 28 Sep, 2013 Lead O/S After completing the crux move right on the first pitch and having moved back left to the groove/arête I then pulled on a large block - which I think moved. Having crapped myself I climbed upward very swiftly - so I didn't hang around to inspect the hold/block. Consequently I can't say if the hold/block was really loose or if I just imagined it. My mate didn't notice anything dodgy when he seconded the pitch but he may well have used different holds. Nevertheless I thought I should post something on here so that other people will at least be aware of the possible danger. I suspect the dodgy rock is avoidable but it would be well worth having a look at the holds on the groove/arete above the crux step right if you are abbing in to the start of the route Offending block since removed by Ian LJ with no increase in grade. Thanks for doing that Ian
