The intimidating sheer wall below The Table provides an atmospheric climb that is a brilliant way to access the start of Cyfrwy Arete itself. From Llyn y Gadair, go up scree to a fin of rock below the wall. Scramble up the gully on the right-hand side of the fin to a belay and gearing-up ledge just right of a rock pinnacle that leans against the face.
1) 9m. Climb up just right of the pinnacle and then move right to a belay.
2) 16m. Climb up left of a grassy corner and then head leftwards to belay at the base of a long corner.
3) 14m. Climb the blocky corner to a good ledge and belay.
4) 10m. From the right end of the ledge climb up and then left to a belay. From here an easy scramble leads down to the start of Cyfrwy Arete. © Rockfax
