Looking from Monk's Buttress towards Pinfold


This part of the escarpment faces north-west, so it does not get the sun until mid-afternoon. The rock may be loose on less popular routes. Good position thank to the steep grass & scree slopes beneath the crag.

Getting There 

Follow narrow lanes out of Llangollen (signposted "World's End"). After 2 miles turn left at a junction with another narrow lane and park after half a mile on the right. Walk up a path in the gully between Pinfold amd Monk's Buttress. At the top of this head right along the base of the crag.
