An amazing wall with some excellent Extreme routes. The crag sees little in the way of sun and is best kept for warm summer days during dry spells as the routes can seep. Approach (see map on page 183) - Follow the approach to Idwal Slabs. At the base of the slabs head up the descent path on the left until below the wall. See topo opposite. This is also the final tricky section of the main Idwal Slabs descent. There is an abseil point often in place at the top of Suicide Wall 1, but this is on a questionable block... beware!
