58m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A pleasant route that feels a little bold. Start below Dorcon.
1) 30m. Scramble up left to the base of a rib. Move out onto the rib and follow it boldly past a holly tree on the right (possible belay). Carry on to a steeper wall and belay on the flake.
2) 12m. Climb left past an overlap to a slab leading to Y Borfa.
3) 16m. Move diagonally right up easier-angle terrain to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Fine, well-positioned climbing, but most climbers would probably conclude, not unreasonably, that this is climb is very high in the grade, (if not actually Severe 4a). Even by Moelwynion slab standards, the first pitch is run out and may unnerve leaders just breaking into the grade. Quality climbing, sustained at the grade, and worth 3 stars any day....
