A good area for mid-grade cragging in a beautiful and tranquil setting 2 minutes from the road. Dig a little deeper and you'll also discover some less conventional gems tucked into the steeper nooks. The area includes a number of different buttresses, and includes trad, sport and DWS routes.
Continue along the Marine Drive from Pen Trwyn, past the summit turn-off, and park near Hamburger Buttress. For a toll-free approach, drive the summit road, turn right after the mid-way tramstation and follow the road down to Marine Drive. From the junction with Marine Drive, drive one-third of a mile until Hamburger Buttress appears on the left, opposite a gateway in the wall. Park by the gate, making sure you leave room for the tour bus to get past.
|Short walk in, clean rock, well bolted. The only downside is the climbing.|

|Wonder Wall is now (June 2013) fully bird restricted and after a visit there yesterday I can see why - the place stinks and has nests and eggs strewn across the crag.|
