Description 

Cadair Idris is a mountain in the southern part of Snowdonia, well south of the popular areas around Llanberis, etc. It is a complex mountain with several high crags that need several days of dry weather to come into condition.


Getting There 

Depends on which part of the mountain you're aiming for, but the main paths come in from the north side.

The slab on P2 of Gwydrin is in the centre of the photo, with its upper right hand side catching the sunlight.  The climbers are on Obsession.

P1 climbs grooves, trending right to reach the base of the upper slab (5.9-)P2 moves left on to the slab, then follows the easiest line upwards, keeping left of the corner. Traverse left to a peg, and pass this, stepping up (crux; 5.10a/b) to reach better cracks near the arete. One of the best mid-grade slab pitches in Wales. After P2 it is easiest to make one long (50 m) abseil from slings on a spike back to the start....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
