Crag features

Contains the wonderful Seamstress Slab, which is as good an introduction to slate as any, with Seamstress (VS 4c) and Seams The Same (E1 5b), both low in the grade. Also offers rather fiercer E6s and E7s if you'd prefer.

Approach notes

From the dip in the path by Dali's Hole continue for about 200m past a circular slate air vent on the L. Walk back a few metres later between the vent and fence up a little path. Don't jump the fence. At the second level bear R past a large hut (some rail lines) to the Serengeti Plain.

Guidebooks

North Wales Climbs

North Wales Climbs covers the best climbing from the whole of this huge and varied area. The book is modelled on the very popular West Country Climbs which set a new standard for selected climb guidebooks back in 2010. It contains all the routes from the 2010 publication North Wales Classics and many more routes and areas, with expanded descriptions and much bigger photo-topos. The book covers all the major mountain crags from Llanberis Pass, to Cloggy; and from Ogwen to the Carneddau. It also includes the Llanberis Slate quarries, Tremadog, the Moelwyns, the Gwynant Valley, Mid-Wales, Gogarth and the North Coast Limestone.

an awesome crag. Normally out of the wind, and south facing too, so it makes a great day out. Routes go between VS-Esomething silly, so caters for a lot of people.
