CLOGWYN CYRAU


Set in the trees above the bustling village of Betws y Coed, the Cyrau crags offer some nice short climbs with a lovely view over the valley. The Little Buttress is popular for single-pitch group use since it is an easy place to set up top-ropes on the easy routes around to the left. The front face has some nice technical wall climbs. The Main Buttress has some longer and very worthwhile routes. Whilst not up to the mountain magnificence of Cloggy, they are a sunny alternative for those based near Betws and might help you escape those tea shops!
