At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Rare ascent of Penelope © MJclimb

Crag features

This well-sheltered series of caves set above the 'Happy Valley' in Llandudno has recently been re-equipped and now holds a host of worthwhile mid-grade sport routes and some long fully bolted adventures.

The crag faces N/NE, and can offer shelter from inclement weather. After periods of wet weather, the lower walls do have some seepage, but the upper walls of Penelope and JSF remain dry in most weather.

Whilst not being of the same rock quality as the majority of the Orme, the routes deserve attention and would benefit from traffic. The crag has had a fairly thorough clean-up but care is still required.

There is still some re-equipping and active projects to be completed - please respect these.

Approach notes

Head for the Marine Drive in Llandudno but bear left towards the Ski Slope and Happy Valley. The best parking is at the Ski Slope and walk back down the steep road to approach the crag.
