Altitude 321m a.s.l
A collection of slab climbs on generally good rock with excellent friction. Protection is adequate and make sure you put in a decent final runner before taking on the more vegetated top outs. There is little in the way of belays apart from a large boulder approx. 5m back from the top of the crag that can be used for many of the climbs on the west side of the crag.
From Capel Curig, take the footpath off the A5 through Bryn Trych Farm and follow it east before breaking off north after a footbridge towards the Crafnant Valley. Follow this for 1km - a keen eye will spot the crag appearing in the distance. Don't approach the crag directly over heathery ground, instead follow the path round and break off at a grassy field marked with a cairn. If you meet a stream and wooden gate you have gone too far.
From the Crafnant Valley, walk through the grounds of the Mynydd Climbing Club's hut, Blaen-y-Nant, and follow the main signposted track to Capel Curig. After a steep initial ascent, the path gently meanders down towards Capel Curig. After passing through a gate and over a stream walk approx. 80m before breaking off left at a grassy field marked with a cairn. If the path starts to veer south-westerly then you have gone too far.
