2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A reasonable route that has an energy-sapping first pitch. Start below the corner.
1) 4c, 22m. Ascend the corner, strenuously in places to a belay on the right.
2) 4a, 30m. Move up the wall to gain the rightwards-trending ramp that leads to a slab. Follow this to the foot of a crack on the left. Climb the slab and crack up left to the top. © Rockfax

great climb fairly sustained but not too hard , deffo worth the stars and cool to climb something like that at tremadog

Bit of a scramble approach buT it's not that bad, diff maybe? Pitch 1, great stemming up the safe steep corner. P2 is fine, the ivy doesn't really get in the way of the climbing at all, steep start and a nice juggy finish up the arête.

Desperate muddy scramble to reach the start. Excellent main pitch with only one awkward section, but the top pitch is in danger of disappearing under brambles and ivy - take a pair of secateurs next time.

I lead pitch two, after taking a small fall pumping out on pitch one - I'd missed a crucial nubbin for bridging on. A disappointing route overall, the first pitch was too short to warrant any starrage and hard for the grade.

Tremfest clean up of approach ... New routing on top pitch up the arete as crack and chimney overgrown - hvs 4c my way? but very fun! First pitch very good. Approach cleaned as had been a rockfall, but rockfall has made it harder - advise use a rope as actual climbing now and be aware there may still be loose material.

Finding it was the hardest part. Big packs on with bulky footwear through mud loose rock and brambles. However. The first pitch is brilliant with great gear all the way. Pitch 2 is some nice move's with more brambles. All in all. 1* and worth a look.

Logged as DNF but actually Did not start But logged here for future reference. Approach is a long exposed diff solo! Deb backed off the crack after 3m, as it was getting late we abseiled off the same route we climbed up to the start and climbed Christmas Curry. Worth a revisit but looks quite sustained and maybe high in the grade.

First climb at Tremadog. I lead 1st, which was a brilliant bridging corner. The climb is let down by the second pitch which was, to be honest, dump. Also the Diff approach was terrifying in the damp with trainers.

most challenging route ive done so far as a climber which hasn't really been very long. The second pitch was fine and i got through it easy but i must admit i did struggle a bit on the crack.layed back up the middle part then there was a few holds to get up the rest. I did rest down on the rope once or twice but i managed to get through it so overall happy :)

Way harder than grades given the guidebook. 1st pitch is outstanding; very gymnastic. Second pitch is initially jungle exploration followed by by a desperated climb up a corner 'cause a crucial foothold is very polished. Might be better for the tall!

Scramble to the start (up broken chimney left of Kestral Crack) might want to be pitched. 1st pitch looks intinidating, but strenuous moves alls short lived, and load of good gear. Really nice pitch. 2nd pitch still a bit over grown, but good position on exposed slab.

Led pitch 2. The approach was rather exciting! Pitch one also had its moments (and was definitely harder than the 4b given in the guide). A nice route all told though. Could do with more traffic on the upper slab!
