Crag features

Three-star classic routes at every grade from VDiff (Spiral Stairs) to E8 (Nightmayer). The superclassics are Cenotaph Corner (E1 5c), Left Wall (E2 5c), Right Wall (E5 6a), Lord of the Flies (E6 6a). Often busy at Bank Holidays and warm weekends.

Approach notes

From the Cromlech Boulders head slightly left and go up alongside the stream before heading right towards the crags as going direct up the scree is painful. Parking can be limited - either arrive early or be prepared for a long walk.  Can also get 'Snowden Sherpa' (park and ride) from Llanberis.  The Boulders are at roadside. Needs dry weather but dries well.

No Access Issues

The approach to the crag due to its popularity is becoming increasingly eroded. One of the best approaches is from leaving the Cromlech boulders, head up and left and follow a small rib that makes its way into a gully, from here head across the slopes to the right back towards the main crag. The approach to Cenotaph Corner itself is now very polished take care on approach but mostly on the descent.
