Rockfax Description
A true mountaineering outing that takes on the ridge that ascends to the spectacularly-positioned 'Table' and then continues to the top of Cyfrwy itself via more exposed and interesting climbing. Although very popular and well travelled there is still a good amount of loose rock that requires careful handling especially if there are parties below. From Llyn y Gadair go up scree to the left of a band of cliff and then make a long traverse across scree and grass above it to the start of the climb.
1) 30m. Climb an arete and then move right to climb a corner. Belay above the corner at an easing in angle.
2) 20m. Continue with care up the blocky arete to The Table.
3) 10m. Awkwardly down climb to the notch and then go left to a belay next to a pinnacle.
4) 18m. Climb the rib above the pinnacle via good cracks and holds to a belay at a small pinnacle and ledge. A magnificently-positioned pitch.
5) 14m. Climb up onto a big ledge and then up a steep wall via a right to left weakness to a large belay ledge.
6) 25m. Move along the ridge to a short chimney that leads up past some wedged blocks to easier ground.
7) 200m. Scramble up the easier section of arete, mainly on its left, to the top. © Rockfax

Lovely mountaineering route. Pitch three (I think! The one where you climb the rib) was one of my favourite ever trad pitches - was doing it in approach shoes so slightly nervous about doing 'proper' climbing on the route, but the holds were massive and there was great protection. A classic climb - led all pitches.

Split a couple of the (already short) pitches in two to help communication. Would probably throw in an extra pitch at the end ('scrambling' pitch in Dan Bailey's book), as it's as hard as anything else and some disturbingly stacked blocks. Excellent route.

Great way to get up Cadair. Had a mini TD gap, mini alpine ridge to practise moving together on and some lovely flowy exposed climbing in the form of P4 and P5! Went up the nicer slab on the right on P6. Rock loose and friable/hollow throughout so go easy. Good day.

Brilliant route - just as good as table direct, we caught up with a group that had walked upto the start of the Arete, quite scary really as the group were 5 novices making up the leader who is his girl friends' personal trainer (and the only one with any climbing experience)and her friend and boyfriend and another friend taking with them only 1 30m rope, a few very large nuts (around 10,12,15), no guide book and they were all in shorts wearing thin trainers with no extra clothing or gear - fair play they all had helmets on although with the wind on top and the leader mentally fried by the time we reached them they were sat wondering whether to try and retreat (with just a 30m rope?!!) or finish the last pitch, so we helped out by rigging their last pitch and top roping the leader up so he could then bring his party up after - we quickly left them too it as it was clear we were becoming responsible for the whole group very quickly! Once topped out we sat and had some food and then after a walk over to the trig point we spotted the other group topping out (about an an hour after us). A great route and brilliant place I want to go back to and do more in this area!

We intended to do the Table Direct start but knocked it on the head due to lack of time, which turned out to be a wise decision! Sean led the first 3 pitches, then I led a couple higher up and we moved together for the rest of the route. Second time I've done it and it's a brilliant route. Foul weather at the summit of Cadair Idris so we sheltered in the refuge hut for a while [at 7.30pm] before setting off back down [via the Foxes path] to our wild camp beside Lyn y Gadair.

Very cold, verglas on the scree on the approach but the sun hit the arete just in time and made it ok to climb without crampons and axes. Lee led most of it, but I led a couple of pitches higher up and we moved together at times too. Spent a long time in the notch watching Lee lead the crux pitch, then painfully watching Ian follow him up. By the time it was my turn I was bloody frozen, but it's a great section of climbing and I soon warmed up. There's a clip of it on YouTube. Walked off in the dark [again!] over frozen terrain which was quite tricky. We hope to do it again in the summer with the Table Direct start.

Lots of mist, very poor visibility. Mainly moved together. Did an interesting but ultimately crap climb/scramble to bypass the first pitch as we'd gotten lost in the mist and been assured by another party on CA that Table Direct started 10m to the left of the start of CA. Made very good progress on the last few pitches. Dithered a bit on the pitch after the downclimb from the table. Took about 4 hours all in. Most dithering came from route finding dithering, not any struggles due to technical stuff.

Climbed in big boots with girlfriend in a mixture of moving together and pitching short steeper sections. My second ascent and Rebecca's first outdoor climb. Rock was pretty wet in some places. Very windy on top. Descended to Minfordd via Cwm Cau.

Alpine ascent, very windy

5 short pitches with a 30m rope, then moved together. Compared to the boring descent via the normal track, this was definitely the right way to go up! Nice day, good route.
