curon 26/Aug/17 Lead dnf

Got to the top of the first pitch, but I had only around 35m of rope payed out, so thought I needed to go further... Ended up on an E3 5b pitch, and fell... Gutted that I didn't spot the belay stance...

GermanAlex 18/Jun/17 Lead

Second route of the day after Longland's, loved the first pitch, it all broke down a bit after that. Went too high on 2nd pitch, downclimbed, traverse was death on a stick, crux slab bit damp, etc. Lovely walk down to Llanberis to a setting sun, though.

Typically it took us ages to find the right route, I almost started up an E3 further up the horrid scramble on lose rock. I did the odd pitches, some nice moves once we had warmed up

Richardlake 03/Jun/16 AltLd O/S

Me Pitch 2 and four, Will Pitch 1 and 3. got lost trying to find that start, plodding around on loose ground. Sketchy. Some good moments but also some wandering, run out bits that weren't as fun. Quite easy to head off route on pitch 2...

First multi-pitch. Slipped once on the fourth pitch because it was raining. Solid type 2 fun. Would do again.

cameron_hall 26/Jul/14 Lead O/S

I made a bit of a mess of Pitch 2, going too high to get on to the rib (and having to back down a bit), and then traversing too high to get to the next belay (making that the definite crux pitch). Great climbing, though! Just a pity the clouds came down when we were near the top, and we missed out on the fabled glorious view from the final arete.

Andrew Sloan 25/Jun/14 AltLd O/S

Got to the foot of the route to find I'd left my climbing shoes in the car! The route is soft for VS so managed to climb it ok in approach shoes. Did as 4 long pitches, I led 2nd and 4th; went too high on the traverse on pitch 2 and had to backtrack. Dry all the way up.

An 'adventure day' - rode (and pushed!) bikes up the Llanberis Path (before 9.00 a.m.) and pedalled round to the crag. Did a slow but steady ascent of Great Slab and then a much faster descent back to Llanberis- brilliant! The route does not seem to be getting much traffic, and in places is much more grassy than it used to be. I thought the upper pitches were quite serious due to spaced protection.

martin c 30/May/14 AltLd O/S

With Rob. I led pitch 1 3 5 and 7 as we added our own pitch by going off route! Rob ended up with pitch 3 (our pitch 4) in the wet corner so climbed the slab to avoid the wet - a very bold lead -certainly not VS. Had whole of Cloggy to ourselves during a long and memorable day. Great first climb at Cloggy even had evening sunshine as we topped out.

Followed a rope of 3 one of whom was inexperienced enough to be shouting 'pull slack', they sailed up ok so was a bit of a surprise to be kacking myself on the first pitch which was polished and sparse - great adventure after the initial traverse though.

DaveGarrity 19/Jul/13 AltLd O/S

Mike led pitch 1, I took the lead on pitch 2 and got us horribly off route, felt more HVS than VS on the traverse (way too high up, way too little gear) across to the second belay. Still, a brilliant route and a definite learning experience for me.

Good old school VS climbing, route finding tricky on pitch 2 and generally poorish gear throughout. Shout out to the dirty, scabby juan kerr who decided to shit on the 1st belay, rather than the cave below, good one dickhead!

Katherine Ross 02/Jun/12 AltLd O/S

I led P2 and P4 (did the last 3 pitches in 2). Accidentally did the HVS traverse across the slab on P2! In total we got lost 5 times on Saturday: Steve on P1, me on P2, Steve on P3, on the descent, and trying to find the main path again in the fog! Got back to Llanberis at about 11.30pm!

I led p2,3 and 5. Pitches 1 and 3 were nice. Route finding awkward and lots of vegetation/ loose rock. Not sure why Cloggy has a "wilderness" reputation. Good exposure but hordes of people on the Snowdon path and three steam trains spoil the aspect. Not worth 3 stars.
