Craig Cwm Glas Bach offers some great single-pitch routes just off the road but strangely quiet. The best route is Weasels Rip My Flesh. From the bridge made of railway sleepers, carry on along the 4x4 track up to a small hidden hut (the second Climbers' Club hut). Continue on in a similar direction for a few minutes. The Gravestones area is visible to the left. Craig Cwm Glas Bach is further on towards Llanberis. Head to the right of a rocky spur and, just after you see the Llyn Peris, carry on to a large drystone wall. The crag is behind you on the left. Head left (looking in) and then back right down the vegetated ramp. Guidebook page 133.
