Crag features

Although there are a limited amount of problems, what exists is superb! Abundent in top quality 7A-7C+ graded problems with a few ace 8A/+'s too.

All of the main routs are located on the main block with a few others (Still worth visiting!) scattered not too far away.

Classics: Gap of Rohan [6C], White Rider [7A+], Moria [7B], Nazgul's Traverse [7C], Badger's in the Mist [7C], Lightweight [7C+], Ride the Wild Smurf sds [8A]

Approach notes

Details: Very short approach, possibly 2-3 minutes. Good footwear recomended as it's pretty loose and slippery at places and trousers in summer to avoid the nettles, unless you're too brave for that sort of thing of course.

Directions: Park in the layby next to cae-ddu ("snowdonia self catering holiday cottage" as shown on google maps). Over the road opposite to cae-ddu there is a gate, go through and follow the winding path upwards directly ahead of the gate before then turning right at the top to the main block.

Must. Send. Everything. Awesome spot!!
