The right-hand side of Cyfrwy viewed from the base...
Cyfrwy is about half a mile long and 500' high. It is north-facing and needs a good spell of dry weather. There are some good, long slab climbs.
From the car park a mile south-west of the Gwernan Lake hotel follow a good south at first. Then head eastwards beneath the crag towards a lake, Llyn y Gadair, and scramble up steep scree and heather to the base of the cliff (about 90 minutes)

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
