Crag features

One of the most prominent peaks in the Rhinogau range hosts a fine collection of Rhinog grit crags on it's Eastern slopes, including Llechau Mawr and Min Pistyl. North East facing so great in summer, but cold and dank in winter. Some very fine slab / wall climbing, solitude, and stunning views make this one of the essential Rhinnog crags, worth visiting by any climber.

Approach notes

Take a minor road west off the A470, half a mile South of Branaber. Follow this for a couple of miles and park after the second gate, before the forest. Take a small pleasant path through this until rugged moorland is reach. Use one's initiative from here. 50 mins or so.

North Wales Climbs

North Wales Climbs covers the best climbing from the whole of this huge and varied area. The book is modelled on the very popular West Country Climbs which set a new standard for selected climb guidebooks back in 2010. It contains all the routes from the 2010 publication North Wales Classics and many more routes and areas, with expanded descriptions and much bigger photo-topos. The book covers all the major mountain crags from Llanberis Pass, to Cloggy; and from Ogwen to the Carneddau. It also includes the Llanberis Slate quarries, Tremadog, the Moelwyns, the Gwynant Valley, Mid-Wales, Gogarth and the North Coast Limestone.
