The Bone People is one of the finest E4s in North Wales, but few people seem to know about it. Add in Synthetic Life and The Bridge Across Forever and you have three routes that are well worth exploring. Sadly the approach is quite hard work, which is the main reason that this wall sees little attention. It faces northwest and stays damp and mossy after rain or in the colder months, but does catch the late afternoon sun.
