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)
