Crag features

Black rock which often looks wet (and can be slow to dry out). Steep, despite appearances. A serious cliff though the rock is fine. Multi-pitch routes up to 230ft, notably Zig-Zag (VS 4b), Black Wall (E1 5c) and Yellow Wall (E2 5b). Also a huge HS traverse, The Black Belt.

Approach notes

Given its position just above Beudy-Mawr near the bottom of the Llanberis Pass, car parking may be hard. Slog up from the road.

Guidebooks

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.

From Tremadog to Tryfan, and everywhere in between, the book covers mid-grade routes on the best crags and features top-notch photo-topos and inspirational action shots taking you where you want to go.

1300 m above sea level seems quite high.
