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.

Getting There 

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)

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
