A very good crag for the sub-E1 climber, plus some thuggy delights for those on E2 or above. The rock is mostly good but beware the organ-pipe shapes: these can be unstable.
Multi-pitch routes up to 200ft, including the very popular Wrinkle (VD), Crackstone Rib (S), Overlapping Wall (E1 5c), Erosion Groove Direct (E2 5c) and - for the thugs - Zangorilla (E4 6a).
Up the Pass between Clogwyn y Grochan and further down from the Cromlech, opposite the Climbers' Club hut on the south side of the Pass.
Dates: 1 June to 31 July
Reason: Nesting Birds
It has been reported that either Peregrines or Kesterels are nesting on the popular route Shadow Wall on Carreg Wastad, with eggs and one unfledged chick on the nest.
As these birds and their nests are legally protected, climbers are asked to avoid climbing the routes Shadow Wall to Trilon inclusive until the birds have fledged at the end of July.
|Currently a kestrel on the nest, 3ft right of Second belay (tree) of shadow wall|
