Rockfax Description
Fantastic slab moves on some of the best mountain rock in Wales.
1) 4c, 32m. Climb the polished ramp right to reach the overlap. Climb leftwards below this to gain the perfect crack in the rounded rib. Follow this to the ledge.
2) 4c, 30m. Climb a short wall to gain a slab, make a reach to gain a hold that leads onto the airy arete. Climb this to gain the large bay.
3) 5a, 22m. A difficult and committing pitch. Traverse left across flaky crimps to gain the niche and follow a crack to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: The rock on the last pitch, where you could potentially placed a good gear, is moving. It is no longer safe to place the gear there.

βeta: There is no longer in situ gear at the top. It came down with me when I attempted an abseil off it! Take care!
