NW facing. Mainly steep crack climbs, some of which have a venerable history. 1 or 2 pitches. Climbs on the steep L side of crag take some seepage and require a period of dry weather.

Getting There 

This cliff is on the left of the main track, before reaching Llyn Idwal. Head straight for the crag, but avoid patches of boggy ground. About 15 min walk from the road.
