Beddgelert Forest Boulders - Boss Cuvier Block © Glyn
Bouldering venue with flat landings although often Damp. Fantastic Dolerite with perfect slopers and massive linkup potential on the main 'Boss Cuvier block'.
To reach the boulders: pull in at the Rhyd Ddu end of the forest. The track turns and runs parallel to the main road (i.e. towards Beddgelert); space to park can be found 100m along this track. Walk back and cross the railway by the pull in spot and walk up the track running straight into the forest. Take the 2nd right turning, then bear right at the next junction. After a few more hundred metres the track runs up hill and a prominent boulder is seen on the right (you can actually see this from the road). Continue up the track until level with the dense forest line then break off right on a small path and follow this for 50m cutting leftwards behind the prominent boulder to reach two undercut blocks.
The walk in takes a good 20 minutes, but can easily be mountain biked in around 10 minutes there, and a gloriously quick 5 minutes back to the road.
