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
Another chipped route, which was 'designed' for tall climbers; shorter people find it much harder. Even for the tall it is ridiculously thin with big moves. © Rockfax
