Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

The rock type, felsite, gives very steep climbing on odd, smoothish rock: not for slab climbers. Single- and multi-pitch routes up to 220ft, including Hardd (E2 5c) and the "out there!!" route of Samurai Groove (E3 5c).
According to Boulder Britain: This is the place where Jerry Moffatt started bouldering.
Lies immediately above the A4085 Aberglaslyn to Penrhyndeudraeth road, about 1mi N of Carreg.
Park in roadside bay by a small stream, just north of a little bridge on a sharp bend (1mile) from Garreg, (3miles) from the A498 junction. The crag is visable when approached from Garreg direction.
The bouldering wall is behind the trees above. Skirt the fence on the right, by the track, and wander left to the wall.
The Snowdon Sherpa 97 bus runs from Porthmadog to Betws, via the road below the crag,
