Access Banned

A major rock fall has occured - access to the lower tier, beyond Dawes of Perception slab is very restricted and has been fenced off to protect the public.

There is currently no access to the quarry and climbers should avoid it for the time being.

The quarry is within the Padarn Country Park, managed by Gwynedd Council.

Rockfax Description
An extremely bold and memorable outing up a vague line of scoops that link Last Tango in Peris and Comes the Dervish. From Last Tango in Peris, make moves up to a diagonal crack and the last good gear until Comes the Dervish. Move on up the scoops to a poor sideways wire placement, then make very nervy moves to a good ledge just short of Comes the Dervish, before reaching the crack with a massive sigh of relief. Finish up Comes the Dervish. © Rockfax
