Rockfax Description
A route of great character. It is unusual in that most of the climbing takes place inside the cliff! It is traditional to climb it on a wet day with a large team for added entertainment. Start by scrambling up to the base of the crag, to the right of a streaked wall, by a prominent rock arch.
1) 20m. Move up and right to a short wall and find a crack. Climb this to a ledge and move right to a tree at the base of the chimney.
2) 8m. Back-and-foot frantically to gain the ledge/path in the chimney on the right.
3) 20m. Walk along the base of the chimney to where the pathway ends. Climb up the chimney again to exit back into the daylight at a large ledge.
4) 15m. An exposed and polished final slab leads to a belay on the top of the crag. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A historic route, somewhere between caving and climbing. The tradition states that it should be done at night in terrible conditions by a large party...
1.From the marble arch descend right to wall with an obvious crack. climb this and scramble up to another crack.
2. climb the crack exiting left onto ledges. Walk right to giant flake, belay at tree
3. Enter the darkness, in front of you is a tight chimney crack leading deep into the rock. Climb up to the chockstone and scramble deeper into the cliff over several short boulders. Emerge after 120ft into the light again by large flake.
4. Save the walk by abseiling off the flake (old rope around flake) or climb straight up to metal spike. Descend to left by large gulley.

βeta: Belay stake available above final scramble if you don't fancy the ab. The ascent path starts from just after the huge boulder, by the gate on the left, and sticks to the left of the field before going over the style and meadering around. Go *through* the arch to start the climb. nice thread above first bit of chimney if you have hesitant seconds. Descent path pops out near the big boulder.

There was an abandoned nut and quickdraw there so someone else had obviously tried it too. Managed to clip this, thrashed around for ages, then finally had to abandon getting past the capstone after numerous tries, was lowered down brought Colin up and we found the correct easy walk out! A classic adventure indeed.

Happy to provide this information in the service of climbing research and education.

skinne 21 May, 2017 Solo O/S Did this in the darkening gloom after a great day at Tremadog. Went well off route trying to find our way onto the route (the scramble in the approach notes: don't go straight up from the rock arch, and I can't​ recommend the slimy, slippery flake/crack first encountered right of the arch either. Maybe try further right?). Interesting, but easier than we expected, and less true chimneying needed. Oh, it was also wet inside, but not out, and massively polished. Glad we made the detour to this.

A large tree at the top of this crack marks the enterance to the chimney. Dont think I found these cracks last time!

Done in 5 pitches and a walk along the middle cave section. The sack was an error but glad of the shoes walking down the gully.

The attempt foundered at lunch-time in the Pen-y-Gwryd after a few pints of beer, though some did carry on over the Glyders. I think there is some additional climbing, starting low in the woods up mossy rock.
