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
A desperate boulder problem in the sky. Start up Mental Lentils and move out left to gain a bolt below a very thin slab. Try and pass this to reach the lower-off. Some gear is required for the section shared with Mental Lentils. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
This route is situated just to the left of Mental Lentils. Start as for Mental Lentils, then break left up small holds and dishes to first bolt, pass this on seemingly smaller holds to second bolt pass this crux. Continue up to lower off point or traverse right to ledge for Ladder Resist/Monster Kitten.
