Access Banned

A major rock fall has occured - access to the lower tier, beyond Dawes of Perception slab is very restricted and has been fenced off to protect the public.

There is currently no access to the quarry and climbers should avoid it for the time being.

The quarry is within the Padarn Country Park, managed by Gwynedd Council.

Rockfax Description
Something of an ankle breaker. Make technical moves up polished rock to hopefully gain the high bolt. Above, the climbing eases but the gear disappears. Start up Mental Lentils. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The rib to the right of Monster Kitten. No protection until after the hard technical crux at ankle-snapping height.
