Description 

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)

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
