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.

Lavaredo © sgl0jd
One of the most beautifully-placed crags in the area (Lledr Valley), with good rock and exposed, quick-drying routes - single- and multi-pitch up to 180ft. Lavaredo (VS 4b***), Fratricide Wall (HVS 5a) and Pin Up (E1 5b).
Head for the eastern side of the Cwm Penamnen valley. Take the A496 and take the road to the railway station of Dolwyddelan. Turn R straight after the railway bridge, past some houses to a narrow gated road, leading to a parking place opposite the crag.
Take a rickety bridge and short path through the woods (L of a fire-break) gets you there.
Rickety Bridge has now been replaced by a lovely new wooden bridge. New parking and picnic area. Walk over the bridge and along a good path to a landrover track. Ahead is a new plantation of pines which is hard to cross. Turn left and walk along the track for a couple of hundred metres and then cross the rough ground to another track and the base of the crag.
|Could not find a good descent path. In situ abseil point near the top of Lavaredo. Had already dropped the ropes so had a hellish bush wack for half an hour. Abseil recommended!|
