CRAIG DDU


Craig Ddu is easily the quietest of the four great crags on the north side of the Pass. This is partly because many of the routes on the central section are very prone to seepage, and partly because they all have a pretty adventurous feel to them, often with fiddly and spaced protection. This should not dissuade any party competent at their chosen grade however, some of these climbs are brilliant when dry, and compare favourably with the best the Pass has to offer.
