Rockfax Description
Fantastic slab moves on some of the best mountain rock in Wales.
1) 4c, 32m. Climb the polished ramp right to reach the overlap. Climb leftwards below this to gain the perfect crack in the rounded rib. Follow this to the ledge.
2) 4c, 30m. Climb a short wall to gain a slab, make a reach to gain a hold that leads onto the airy arete. Climb this to gain the large bay.
3) 5a, 22m. A difficult and committing pitch. Traverse left across flaky crimps to gain the niche and follow a crack to the top. © Rockfax

Bangflopnot 13 Apr 2nd dnf Cold wind & frozen fingers isn’t a great mix for multi pitching! Nice first pitch but soo much polish! The second pitch saw me struggle on the last leftside arête, not being able to feel my fingers, aching arms & very strong wind took away my positive attitude & I Messed it up. A fall and tearing my down jacket didn’t help things. Finally managed to get my feet high enough on the left hand face & pushed up for the jug. Was met on the belay with sunshine & a climber with a broken wrist. We helped in the abseil and didn’t finish the 3rd pitch, I was particularly upset tbh! Finish it in the summer ;)

cperryhouts 1 Jul, 2018 AltLd Really peaceful climbing with a short walk-in, and close to the lake! I led the first and third pitch, Marianne led the second. First pitch starts with a cool (if polished) flake trending right, then left and leading to a crack which you follow up to a large belay stance. Second pitch had committing moves on the arête, as the guidebook suggested. Marianne worked these out and then continued across the face (not up the arête) and found herself working up a chimney. Second pitch ends on a big ledge. I led the last pitch, starting with a good 3-5 minutes of hesitation stepping off onto the traverse (having reached out from the right-hand jug to place a nut to start with). The traverse was short-lived, before I found myself in a jamming crack to finish.

The two pitches we did seemed desperate - much harder than I remember! NB be careful with the rope on the middle pitch - when the gear fell out I was looking at a ground fall into the gully on the left if I'd fallen off seconding.

Dan Radford 6 Jun, 2018 AltLd O/S Coggo lead first two pitches. P1 good climbing. P2 average with some dodgey protection, polished holds and awkward moves. If you stick to the arete the polish tellingly vanishes as the moves become quite bold. Lead the excellent final route defining pitch. Step out from the belay ledge to immediately gain a massive amount of exposure and traverse left on flakes making sure to look down through your legs to marvel at the potentially enormous swing fall you could take. Moves are easy just be sure to spot all the holds from the ledge before committing and don't hang around. Arrive at a ledge with first good pro and ram 2 nuts and a hex in, have a quick word with yourself about what you've just done prior and then motor up the layback crack to the glorious finish

Pixie-Andy 20 May, 2018 AltLd O/S An awesome route. Q. P2, did you layback, right of arete or left, ready to face the chimney? Anyway, IMO a 5a move on all 3 pitches. Polish start P1, 5a. P2, off balance weird move with tiny cam @ airy arete, 5a. Might be some hidden gear for right hand rope. Ran out of time & balls for pitch 3, looked like E1 5a to me & viewing UKC, some 'might' agree. I didn't like the thought of unknown on tiny nuts. Mind you now i know i can put my feet on the hand rail, i think i'll have to go back! ;-)

Still as good a route as ever! Still not really getting polished except for initial crack on first pitch. Second pitch good quality pleasant climbing. Top pitch still a scary affair that I have never lead! - exciting position, dubious gear that's difficult to place and hollow holds! Overall a great route!

cmsg 26 Apr, 2009 AltLd O/S Led pitches 1 and 3. Llew didn't follow the last pitch. My stupid fault for protecting the traverse poorly; though I did offer to move the belay to mitigate this. Bemused as to why it receives only one star here. Classic route, three stars in the books, and three stars as voted for here. As for complaints of polish, there's a fair bit on the initial layback, but perfectly climbable with careful footwork. Last pitch hardest by far, but would never say unbalanced.
