Dinas Cromlech

Description 

The obvious feature of this wall is the hugh dihedral of Cenotaph Corner, perfectly framed by its left and right wall - along with the corner itself these walls have some excellent and very steep face climbs (Memory Lane, Left Wall, Resurrection - Lord of the Flies, Right Wall, Cemetary Gates). On the wings there are some slightly more moderate routes, Flying Buttress on the right, and Spiral Stair and Dives/Better Things on the left.

Descend to the right of the crag.


Getting There 

Park at the Cromlech Boulders and hike up the steep loose trail to the base.

Featured Route For Dinas Cromlech
Pitch 1 with the pinnacles of pitch 2 just visible at the top, it's easily possible (and recommended) to link the first two pitches together.

Flying Buttress 5.5 4b 13 IV+ MS 4a  Europe : United Kingdom : ... : Dinas Cromlech
An essential classic. Steep and exposed, but furnished with the regular occurrence of positive holds. Pitch 1 (55ft) Head up the middle of the buttress.Pitch 2 (60ft) Continue up to the larger pinnacles.Pitch 3 (65ft) Drop down in the gap and climb the steep wall on the left. Pitch 4 (50ft) Follow the slab rightwards to a ledge.Pitch 5 (50ft) The awkward chimney on the right is thankfully short lived....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
