UKC

58m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
This crack provides a testing pitch. Scramble up to the base of the V-groove of Dorcon and start just to its left. Make some hard moves up the middle of the wall to gain the crack. Climb this to the rib and follow to the first belay on Y Gelynen. Finish up this. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The initial wall is bold, steep and testing; the crack, when reached, provides little respite. Very high in the grade; possibly E2 5c.

M Crook, M Griffiths May/1978.

βeta: Not sure about high in the grade/E2. Pokey off the ground for about 4m until you get the first runner in, probably the hardest moves at the start. Well protected cruising up the crack.
