The dome-shaped crag just NE of Llyn Gwynant. Take the A498 and then head to Hafod y Rhisgl on the old road about 50m on. Park under trees. Cross the river by the footbridge (about 300m above the lake) and continue through the wood - about 10 minutes' walk.

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.

Bovine is well worthy of the three stars it gets. Worth visiting the crag for this climb alone.
