The Pinch - Sheep Pen Boulders, Ogwen Valley © FH

Crag features

Far from the rest of the Pass - outside it, in fact. Multi-pitch routes up to 240ft. "Scruffy" (vegetated) in many parts, and slow to drain. When dry, gives good friction and incut holds.

Approach notes

Park at Pen Y Pass and take the miner's track S towards the pipeline.
