| E2 5c|
<< Hyll Drem Girdle < Wildebeest | None > None >>
The route definitely offers a 'hard' struggle but the name actually means 'beautiful' in Welsh. We'll leave it to you to decide which of the adjectives is more appropriate after your ascent. Start by scrambling up the ramp behind the tree to a stance below the arete of Wildebeest.
1) 5c, 30m. Move easily up and right on a ramp until you can step left onto a wall and move left to a steep crack. Move up the crack to a roof and move left again then make a bold step left onto a slab. Carry on leftwards to a rest at its end. Continue on in a similar direction over bulges to reach a groove. Move up and left again to an exposed sloping ledge with a peg and wire belay.
2) 4c, 14m. Descend the groove - much easier for the leader than the second! With hands below the ledge, reach a line of good holds that lead left across a steep wall. Follow these to a belay.
3) 4a, 12m. As for Samurai Grooves.
