The left-hand side of Carreg Wastad has several great mid-grade routes and the easy classics of The Wrinkle and Crackstone Rib making it a popular location. Approach (see map on page 100) - A small path traverses up and left to the crag from just below the Jerry's Roof boulder by the road, 100m down from the main Cromlech boulders. The crag is descended on the left (looking in)by few small rock steps and the scree slope.
