Crag features

A superb boulder sitting above the west bank of the Arfon Ffrydlas just five mins walk downhill from Tan-Y-Foel terraces above gerlan.

Home to the soon-to-be classic "Chopsaw" along with several good quality easier problems with potential for hard sitters. 

Good landings, quick drying, afternoon and evening sun.

Approach notes

Take rd towards Rachub off A5, continue along Henbarc Rd past Rachub towards Gerlan and after Y Sior pub take left onto Carneddi Rd.  After 100m Take 1st left steeply uphill to a dead end at Tan-Y-Foel terraces. Park here.

Take footpath between the two terraces east (right) and follow it towards the river.

Don't decend path down river bank to river, instead follow river downhill staying high above tree line, passing two fences until you stumble across a very fine looking boulder.


Don't take any notice of the GPS co ordinates or directions listed on here for this boulder, not even nearly right, what a waste of time....
