75m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Are you a slab-master or a crack-addict? You'll need both skills for this classic.
1) 4b, 30m. Start as for Direct Route. At the twin pinnacles, head right and traverse delicately above a rock scar. Move up to belay on a ledge 6m below an overhang.
2) 5b, 30m. One of the best slab pitches in Wales, and therefore the World! Climb past the small overhang to a good runner on Diagonal. Move up, then traverse left boldly to a thin crack. Follow this (technique required) up to the ledge on Direct Route, belay on the bollard below the small roof and crack.
3) 5b, 15m. Climb the bollard and pointed flake to gain the overlap. A stiff pull up and right gains the overhanging corner-crack. Power up this to the top. © Rockfax

davkeo 30/Oct/16 AltLd O/S

p2&3. There was a big wet streak in the middle of the p2 slab so I wasn't quite sure if it was dry enough but was hopeful I could climb around it. It turned out I could but by the time I knew this I was committed anyway. P2 is defo one for the on sight lead and anything else must be a different experience entirely. Had no RP's and the crux slab traverse felt out there and bold. Standing above a reasonable micro cam (not sure I trusted a big fall to it) with the next solid peace 2/3 meter below that. I was considering 2 options for the traverse & so there was an element of doubt before committing to the thin sequence. A bit of cool required. An exciting pitch. P3 was short lived but an enjoyable contrast. Good lead by Anni on the p1 traverse under damp conditions and spaced gear.

annihuovinen 30/Oct/16 AltLd O/S

It's not strenuous climbing but technical and runout between good gear. Absolutely amazing pitch. Well in kc. P3. Steep and awkward to get into the groove. Once I hit the overhang and got hands on the layback and jugs I was away. Almost popped off when feet cut loose but gathered it together . Top 50 route from me.

ksjs 09/Jul/13 Lead O/S

Immaculate! Led all pitches with P2 being the stand out. Bit pokey going left into the thick of things, couldn't find the runner on Diagonal (I put a cam under Diagonal's roof) but did fiddle in some micro wires in the seams. Steady enough once you go for it. Just delightful climbing even if I wasn't necessarily thinking that at the time!

Led P1 cleanly. Seconded P2 - nice pitch. Tried P3 but had to lower off from under roof. Patrick tired, and couldn't do P3, and so I led the Direct route last pitch, VS 5b, though crux (the bottom) crack all wet, so as the CC guide suggested, used Patrick's shoulder once I was up bridging, as there was no purchase on the slime, and no more bridging to be had without some hand purchase. You need bigs cams up here, and placing anything smaller is hard! Top was wet as well. Lowered Patric down to retrieve gear on other P3 pitch, and hauled him back up! :-)

i took 2nd pitch, on a bitterly cold and windy day. really good gear in the slot then a commiting traverse, which is a little longer than you think leads too some more runners, then just followed the flake cracks, nice. top pitch is very strenuous

Ram MkiV 30/May/06 AltLd O/S

led 1st and last pitch. Bitterly cold seconding second pitch after belaying on windy stance for ages. Took a long time to warm up for third.
