A small area with a couple of under-climbed gems and one incredible expedition. Flytrap can remain very damp in all but drought conditions, whist 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea can dry quickly. Any sun the area gets is in the afternoon. For Flytrap it is much later in the day. Approach (see map on page 278) - From the North Stack approach, walk up the track to a plateau. Stay on the track as it heads down towards North Stack lighthouse. At a big right-hand corner, head straight on and you should pass an RSPB/BMC nesting restriction sign. The top of the descent gully and abseil point are just beyond this. A lowish tide is required for these routes. a There is a seasonal restriction due to nesting birds between 1st Feb - 31st July.
