2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A good combination of pitches that makes the most of the best rock. Start below a recess down and just right of the white slab.
1) 4a, 35m. Move up into the recess and follow it up to a traverse left to gain the base of a slab. Move diagonally up right to a triangular niche at the bottom right of the white slab (possible belay). Step left and climb the bold white slab to the ledge known as Y Borfa (The Pasture).
2) 4b, 16m. Enter the stunning groove and climb it to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A very worthwhile combination of contrasting pitches. Nicely sustained, with a well-positioned final pitch.

Misha 30 Aug AltLd O/S Improves considerably once past the heather and sheep poo infested ledges low down. The slab features nice friction climbing with lots of pockets, while the groove is in contrast fairly steep. Nice but only one star in my book. Tim led P1 and I led P2.

TomatoPro 1 Jan, 2018 Lead O/S Climbed in rain, wearing tennies for comfort. Started from the small crack below the very vegetated approach to the slab. Excellent pocket climbing up the slabs and gear if you look hard enough. Climbing on 60m twin ropes, had very little slack to take in for the second to start! Oscar got very cold hands, seconding through hail. Cindy and Lydia appeared at the top having gone through the tunnel. Corner pitch running with water. Some nice moves! Primaloft really does stay warm when wet.

Oscar Popels 1 Jan, 2018 2nd Oooh Yeah. What a way to start the year. As Freddie started the route it started raining. The hail came afterwards as I started seconding. Much of the route involved pulling on jugs full of water and hail. Even in these adverse conditions I was impressed at the quality of the route. The hot aches I received at the end of each pitch did detract a little from it though.

dpiddock 28 May, 2016 AltLd O/S Climbed White Streak as 2 pitches, following the dated CC Meirionnydd guide. I did the bold 2nd pitch. Stephen decided to run up Honeysuckle Corner for our exit. The Rockfax "North Wales Climbs" topo is dangerously inaccurate. You need to start higher than suggested, at the start of the slabs, to not run out of 50m rope during the gear light second half.
