Rockfax Description
This is a popular scramble and a full description can be found in Snowdonia Mountain Walks and Scrambles and on Rockfax Digital. It is included here as a method of descent although it is only recommended as a descent in dry conditions.
A small worn path leads into the top of a relatively easy but loose gully. You can descend with relative ease until about 15m above the Jammed Boulder. Where often a spike on the wall has tat which is used to abseil to the top of the Jammed Boulder - we recommend this over the down-climb for most parties. It is possible to down climb just to the right of the chimney/gully (looking in) and reach the ledge that way. If you are extremely confident and it is dry, you can climb down through the slot that is the Jammed Boulder - not recommended. Instead there is a fixed abseil station on the edge of the jammed boulder that enables a 30m abseil down the outside of the boulder. Once completed, you can walk out. © Rockfax

βeta: Best to continue after the first cave pitch, not abseil off. The second squeeze pitch is also fun and completes the route.
