Crag features

All the boulders and walls described in the Fachwen section of North Wales Bouldering. The most popular sector is Y Clegyr (not to be confused with Clegir on the other side of Llyn Padarn), but there are many other gems scattered around.

This section of the guidebook is not comprehensive, and many more esoteric and minor problems can also be found here.

Note for Hollt Graig (Split Rock). Take care when climbing the North facing problems. This is a popular party spot and despite valiant clear up efforts of local climbers, there is a lot of broken glass at the bottom of a number of climbs (August 2021).
