76m, 3 pitches. An enjoyable route on steep rock. Start by scrambling up to the foot of the orange patch.

P1 4a: 21m Climb directly up past the orange streaks to belay in a niche.
P2 4b: 18m Climb the wall above, trending left where necessary. Surmount eh little overhang to reach a ledge and block.
P3: 37m Walk to the rib on the right and follow to the top, or scramble left to join the descent.

P2, Steve did P1 which i thought the most technical with a poorly protected crux. P2 was a delight and funky holds

A minor route finding error lead to simon climbing P1 and P3 of the route but me climbing p2 of crossover! Never mind we then climbed p1 of crossover and p2 of orange outang

with Simon C
Simon Caldwell 16/Aug/14 AltLd O/S

I led p1 and p3. Followed the (incorrect) topo in the guide, so p2 was borrowed from Crossover. Did the correct p2 later, with p1 of Crossover. P1 was hard and bold.

Some excellent climbing on this route. Probably best to run pitches 1 & 2 together then ab off as the top pitch is rather a drag, as is the descent gully.

Good fun route with good, committing holds up steep rock. I led p2 4b past the overhang. Midge infestation so we bailed after p2 and exited to the left to join the descent route (p3 looked like a long easy pitch up the rib to the top)

Led in one pitch. Just to reiterate previous comments. The topo in the guide book is wrong. follow the route descrition and head for the little overhang on P2. The bottom of the 1st pitch is getting a bit bushy

P1. Meirionnyd guide is deceptive as the route description and the diagram differ - we chose to believe the route description and climbed to the left on the second pitch, past the 'small overhang' which I guess is what gives the route its name. The guide diagram shows the second pitch to head rightwards - where we believe to be the second pitch of 'crossover' (and if you look at the picture all of a sudden this will make sense as the two routes will then indeed cross over!)
