Jenn on Fish Skin Arete © TRNovice

Crag features

Down beneath the lakeside on the tight S-bend between Nant Peris and Llanberis.

The main climb in this area (Fish Skin Wall V7) is on an outcrop on the lower tier. Non-documented climbs exist on the upper tier and new climbs have been established on the Underwater Boulder by the lake side.

Also new climbs exist on the hillside above the lay-by.

Approach notes

Park in the layby. An old, rusty (and now wired closed) gate marks the start of the descent. Climb the fence (ideally on the right as one of the blocks supporting a fence post is loose on the left). Take the vague path, which at first goes towards the lake and then drops round to the left. The main wall is pretty recognisable, but it also has a bent, rusty iron spike sticking out above head height on the left hand side. [NWB page 96]

Ah, sorry I just saw this TRNovice. I added True Playaz, which is on the hillside above Llyn Peris Walls, to this crag with a description of how to get to it.

Hi TRNovice pleased to have visited this area today, what's the upper crag like? Any access issues?

I haven't added any of the problems on the hillside above the lay-by as I wasn't sure whether this would lead to confusion about location.
