Fantastic slab moves on some of the best mountain rock in Wales.
1) 4c, 32m. Climb the polished ramp right to reach the overlap. Climb leftwards below this to gain the perfect crack in the rounded rib. Follow this to the ledge.
2) 4c, 30m. Climb a short wall to gain a slab, make a reach to gain a hold that leads onto the airy arete. Climb this to gain the large bay.
3) 5a, 22m. A difficult and committing pitch. Traverse left across flaky crimps to gain the niche and follow a crack to the top.
FA. G.Barlow, H.Priestley-Smith 1910. FA. (P3) J.M.Edwards 1941
