CRAIG CYWARCH


Craig Cywarch is a huge rambling cliff set in a little visited valley and one of the most beautifully positioned in Wales. The huge array of buttresses that line the eastern elevation of Craig Cywarch is easily viewed from the carpark. The clean triangular buttress directly above the parking is Tap y Graig and is the home of Cywarch's most popular expedition Will-o'-the-Wisp. Hidden from the parking at the head of Cwm Cywarch is Craig Llywelyn a huge brooding section of Craig Cywarch that has a number of deep-set corners and jagged ribs. The cliff as a whole is draped in a good deal of vegetation but the rock is excellent and on the classic routes described relatively clean.
