Crag features

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.

Approach notes

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 Dolerite is a term over used in outdated surveys.
