Crag features

Rough, dark rock; sound and clean with plenty of big holds. Vast amounts of heather, though this seldom impacts on the climbing itself. Multi-pitch routes to 70 metres.

Approach notes

Approach using a small footpath west of the Helyg hut, or over a small bridge from the campsite and parking area at Gwern y Gof Isaf (SH685601).

The rest of the routes on this crag are on "Gallt yr Ogof Crag", including another version of Red Slab Direct.
