Rockfax Description
A magnificent bold wall-climb giving open and exposed climbing on good holds with spaced protection.
1) 4c, 10m. Climb the large flake onto the pedestal and belay, as for Curving Crack.
2) 5b, 45m. Move out right passing a narrow corner, then head up via a hard move to a small quartz ledge. Move up and left gaining a small groove and follow it for 13m past an old peg. Move right and head up with difficult to an overlap and more ageing ironmongery. Go right to gain better holds and a short groove leading to a large flake. Traditionally the belay is here, but continuing up left onto the arete makes for a better pitch and a more comfortable belay.
3) 5a, 12m. Finish easily up the arete as for Curving Crack. © Rockfax

Dan Hale 19 May, 2017 Lead O/S So it went like this. On Wednesday I went to the slate with Air and climbed The Mau Mau, then I very nearly flashed a bouldery 7b...I was really bloody tired but psyched. Callum, my estranged Spanish compatriot was due to meet us. We were late, he'd hurt his knee. So we never met. Air and I climbed again the next day. We were both so sleepy, I turned up at her place, we drank a lot of coffee. We had a nice day climbing E2's and chatting at Scimitar Ridge, then talked of well needed rest days. Then Callum's mate Lily messaged me. I'm so bad at saying no...I dropped Air off, dunked my head in the metaphyiscal bucket of icey water and drove flat-out to Capel Curig. Lilly was there at the side of the road and with little exchange of words we tore of towards the Snowdon Path. Lily is an ex-competition fell-runner. My lungs hurt. We arrived at the base of the routes with 2 hours of daylight. The wind blew strong and cold, the rock grippy as sandpaper. The run-outs were surreally huge, the climbing was steady but the moves were long and committing. We scrambled down with head-torches at dusk and descended into the sunset.
