Crag features

A lone boulder beneath the Gallt yr Ogof Crag that offers some great and varied lines from V2 to V11. The latter being Chris Davies' celebrated Sway On.

Approach notes

Park at the Gwern Gof Isaf campsite off the A5 between Capel Curig and Ogwen Cottage (fee £1 at time of posting). From here walk down the old road (now a path) towards Capel Curig. About 200m after a path has joined from the left and before you are fully under the main crag, you can see the isolated large boulder to your right up the hill. Cross the gully and head up directly towards it (or skirt the edge of the ferns if you don't have Gortext footwear).
