These remote slabs have some great easy routes, plus peace and quiet is almost guaranteed. It is easily possible to climb Left Edge then descend rightwards down the ridge to the bottom of the Red Slab and do the other routes. Approach (see map on page 196) - Park near the house at Tal-newyddion (don't park at the house). Walk north (away from Ogwen) down the road past the house and gain the field (boggy) on the left. Skirt back around behind the house to the wall and follow a steep path up the hillside into the cwm. There is no access to this path from directly behind the house. Make your way up to the slabs which are on the hillside above and to your right. Walk rightwards down the broad ridge. For the last route of the day you can climb with your sacks and descend the ridge back to the house and road.
