Restricted Access

No known access issues. However Anglesey Council (who manage the coastal path that passes close to the top pf the crag)  have recieved complaints from walkers, that climbers cause a hazard by belaying across the path. The neighbouring farmer has also blamed climbers for the collapse of the boundary wall, due to climbers using it to belay from. Please avoid doing this!

The land above the crag is now designated open access land.

Multiple Gul nests around the area, worth inspecting your route before commiting.

Rockfax Description
S2, 6b+. An amazing route, and one of the best deep water solos in the UK, although it is a bold one being both high and above rocks at the start. Climb up to a jug, level with the start of the faultline. Make a committing reach to gain the faultline and follow it up and right to its apex. Make hard moves to exit from the apex up a crack where the climbing eases. Follow the easiest terrain to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: I suspect I went too far left after reaching the apex of the lip. I will probably do this again, go a little more direct and jump in after for good measure.
