75m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A classic outing taking the central line of the buttress with some devious moves. Start on the large ledge gained by a scramble up the gully/chimney.
1) 4b, 22m. Climb the groove, taking the left branch until you reach a niche 2m below the capping roof. Arrange some gear and make a balancy move back right to regain the main groove-system and belay almost immediately on a small ledge below a steepening.
2) 4a, 22m. Follow the corner-crack which soon slabs off and leads up to a large ledge and block belay.
3) 4b, 20m. Step down from the belay and pull left onto the steep wall. Stand up and get established in the small groove, before traversing left on good holds to the base of another groove. Follow this up to a ledge. Belay over left on the tree. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Its a lovely climb but the rock is pretty rotten on pitch 3, with some really loose large blocks which unfortunately also look like lovely inviting hand holds! Not hard, just a little scary because of this.

Great variations of climbing between each pitch. The first belay ledge is useless, especially with three folk trying to squeeze in. Led P3, which consisted of super loose blocks, bad gear, airy position once you move towards the arête. Solid climbing however. Thrilling would be the word to describe that pitch.

led pitch 2. Also did start of pitch one of Spectre - up to the ledge. NOTE - there is a large 2ft x 6" block on the right of the small groove of the top pitch (4), about 15 ft up just before head leftwards. Its an inviting handhold but is just sitting there - it needs tumbled, but will fall all the way down the route & can't see the bottom.

with Tim C
asmith37 26/Sep/09 Lead O/S

Did in 4 pitches, 1st belay is very cramped, would be better to link pitches 1 & 2 although communication & rope drag would be a problem. Pitch 1 was steep and easy with a tricky move going around the rib near the top.I thought pitch 2 was the most awkward, not many positive holds when you want them. Pitch 3 was steep with nice climbing on really positive holds and is much easier than it looks from below, however there are no worthwhile runners until a vertical crack near the top, watch out for some very wobbly blocks on this pitch! Pitch 4 is short and easy, not really worth the effort, better to abb off at the top of pitch 3. We took a look at the descent gully which looked very slippery, so down climbed last pitch and abbed off. Although a good and varied climb and well worth doing, not really deserving of its classic status.

mikeshewring 25/Sep/09 AltLd O/S
groovy_nut 18/Sep/09 Lead O/S

Consider abseiling: the descent to the left (looking in) is miserable. I understand there was a fatality here not so long ago and it was clear how that could happen judging by what it was like in the wet.

Abseiled off after pitch 3. I found the description of pitch 3 in "North Wales Rock" a little misleading. The description in the "Llanberis Pass" guidebook makes more sense (oh, and I have been up Nea before!). Yes, a small-ish rock spike a couple of moves up pitch 3 is indeed loose ... which I only found out when I put some gear behind it and then pulled up on it! It's still hanging around, so be aware!!

We set off from the car at 6.30 when the rain got a little lighter. It soon came back, heavy as ever. It was getting dark when we discovered that the last pitch had fallen off. After some consequent excitement, two rather soggy climbers just made last orders at the Vaynol.

Did this in the mid-late 80's. Glad I didn't lead top pitch. I think the original top pitch had only just fallen off then. First 2 pitches I rember as highly polished back then. Can only reiterate what an earlier logger has written :- "recomend absailing out as the walk/down climb out is horrible" Very, more dangerous unroped than the climb was roped.
