The route definitely offers a 'hard' struggle but the name actually means 'beautiful' in Welsh. Start by scrambling up the ramp behind the tree to a stance below an arete.1) 5c, 30m. Move easily up and right on a ramp, then step left onto a wall and move left to a steep crack. Climb the crack to a roof and move left again. Make a bold step left onto a slab and carry on leftwards to a rest. Continue leftwards over bulges to a groove. Move up and left to an exposed sloping ledge and belay.2) 4c, 14m. Descend the groove - easier for the leader than the second! With hands below the ledge, reach a line of good holds that lead left across a steep wall. Follow these to a belay.3) 4a, 12m.
