Crag features

Routes mostly concentrated around the E1 grade. Some routes (the very hardest) have bolts, though hardly count as sport. Since 2006 many easier lines have been well bolted, to make this a popular sport climbing spot on a sunny day.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ALL ROUTES ON THE HOLY HOLY HOLY WALL ARE IN AN AREA OF DISPLAY, AND DUE TO CURRENT SITUATION WITH FIRST HYDRO, PLEASE `DO NOT `GATHER HERE IN LARGE NUMBERS, OR THIS COULD HAVE AN AFFECT ON ACCESS TO THE WHOLE QUARRYS.
`DO NOT` DAMAGE THE FENCE!

Approach notes

Reached from Bus Stop Quarry parking and following the well-marked path through a gate, until you can see the large pool and bolted slab of Dali's Hole on the left.

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.

The vast majority of the hangers have been removed off of the Holy, Holy, Holy wall. Bolts have been left and some of them have nuts still attached.

follow access from commenter below, also the abseil (in or off your climb) is either walk around, trust a rotting stumpy wooden (concreted based) post, trust a small rusty iron hanger of sorts or bring 2 L brackets and 2 nuts as there are bolts left in.

DO NOT CLIMB THE FENCE!!!! The following link will show the correct 'spiral / round the back access' http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msid=206243880791400744219.0004a7dffa652925269da&msa=0

Does anyone know what the name (if logged) of the sport climb between 'Zambesi' and 'Launching Pad' ? it has a piece of slate at the bottom which says it was bolted by accident and is at f6b... Cheers.
