The main crag of interest at Rhoscolyn has some superb routes which are easy to access, non-tidal and in a lovely south-facing setting. Getting to the bases of the routes can be a little awkward but you are more than rewarded higher up. Approach (see map on page 316) - From just before the stile, head down the descent gully to a good racking-up spot on a jumble of boulders level with the start of Icarus. aThere is an occasional restriction around Wild Rover, which is signposted at the crag if it is in force. Guidebook page 320.
