The crag that is always warm and often dry when clouds hang over the Llanberis Pass a few miles away. Many quality routes, mostly HVS and harder, apart from the classic Poor Man's Peuterey.
Bird Restrictions: As per RAD, the routes Gothic Grooves and Raven's Nest Wall (on Hogmanay Buttress) are to be avoided 1 Feb - 31 May. Due to nesting ravens.
Often hard to identify routes from the road due to trees. Walk off the top rather than abseiling, to save the trees.
|don't try to walk off to the right looking up. chest high brambles and no path. no path to the left from falcon/vulcan area so abseil is the only viable option for descent.

|DO NOT abseil off if possible/practical. It's lazy, antisocial and erodes the trees.

|abseil off if possible to prevent erosion of the paths

|I don't believe this is Dolerite. More likely to be Micro-gabbro with Mica schist at the base.
Dolerite is a term over used in outdated surveys.
