Crag features

A nice, easily accessible little Rhinog Grit outcrop in a lovely setting near the eastern shore of Llyn Trawsfynydd, with some excellent bouldering developed since the last (2002) guide was published.

All the routes here are confusingly described from right to left in the current CC guide, but below they are correctly described from left to right. Some recent grade revisions affecting a few of the older routes have been made by the area guidebook team and some new(ish) boulder problems added.

The crag is wrongly named in both Meirionnydd and on OS maps; the correct name being Carreg yr Ogof. This is the name that will be used in the new guidebook which is currently under development.

Be wary of adders in summer months.

Approach notes

The crag is on CROW land and is located just west of Trawsfynydd village, which is easily accessed from the A470. Trawsfynydd is some 20 minutes drive from Tremadog. 

For further detailed access information, see Meirionnydd 2002.
