Description

The main crag consists of three 600' buttresses (North, Central, South) skirted at the bottom by a trail known as the Heather Terrace. Many great long moderate mountain routes here, Gashed Crag, Munich Climb, Overlapping Rib Route, Belle Vue Bastion, and Grooved Arete being the most noteworthy.

The longer climbs tend to be broken up by grassy ledges, which in general does not detract, nor do the sheep! But rather add to the atmosphere. There are wonderful prospects of the Ogwen Valley and the Carneddau from the East Face routes.

Getting There

Park on the A5 roadside pullout, then head up the obvious rugged trail which eventually passes through a gully and gains the Heather Terraces, most climbs start from this (Munich Climb and Belle Vue Bastion excepted).
