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.

Excellent rock, with steep routes; often sunny when the mountain crags are in cloud (read: rain). Pitches up to 150ft/45m.
The crag overlooks the car park by Pont y Pair, the bridge at the NW end of the village.

|The seat mentioned in some of the access notes doesn't seem to exist any more. The path takes an obvious zig-zag where I think its supposed to be. Just keep following the footpath up and you'll find the wall. The crag has been completely empty when I've been which is surprising given how good the location and climbing are. The scramble on the left can be a bit bad if damp and you don't take your approach shoes up to the top with you...|

|The photo of the approach in the Rockfax book has a sign in it - that sign is no longer present, but the approach is still easy to find.|

|Conwy Buttress quite vegetated in April 2014 when we visited - limited climbs easily available|

|Access advice: from the Pont y Pair car park follow the road up until, after a 100m or so, you reach a sharp right turn (residential road shown as a cul-de-sac). After about 100m this becomes a tarmac Forestry Commission road which soon turns sharp left past three houses on the right. After these take a right on a rough forest road then a footpath towards Pen-yr-Allt. Take a right by a seat and Main Cliff is above you.|
