Crown of Thorns
<< Mabinogion < Sea Panther | Zig Zag > Canol >>
An interesting route tackling a great part of the left side of the cliff. Wait for a good dry-spell since it is dreadful when wet.
1) 30m. Start at a prominent boulder, 15m right of a chimney. Climb straight up to the ledge at 8m, then onto a rightward-leaning ramp. At the top of the ramp, trend slightly leftwards and then continue straight up to another ledge. Follow the final ramp-line rightwards to a belay in the corner.
2) 4a, 25m. Skirt the steep wall above via a slab on the right. Pull back left and tackle the crux to reach easier ground.
