As title says can anyone pinpoint cave location on Moel yr Ogof in Snowdon. It’s above Beddgelert. 

Walked over mountain several times, never found it. Signage on o/s map so long it could be anywhere on mountain. Grid ref will do. Thanks

Thanks that helps a bit. Photo shows  views of Bedddelert forest so I deduce the cave is on the east side of the mountain!

It's easy to find on a good day, if you know where it is. It is on the east side, and is visible from the right of way below that runs up from the forest. You descend into a gully where there's an old asbestos mine, then have to traverse an airy ledge to reach it. I've never been along the ledge; too airy for me, but I know people who have done it. GR is approx SH 55989 47835

Good luck! Report back and let us know how it goes (and if you managed to traverse across to the cave itself).

The traverse into the cave is not even mod.  You can see it from the Caernarfon to Bedgelert road before its start's to go down the hill into Bedgelert.   Access via the camp site,

It will be a cave as in the OS version, don't be expecting to much in what ever kind of Igneous rock that is,

I do remember being very excited at finding asbestos in a cave, but maybe that's just me.
