COVID-19

Please make sure you have read and understood our current advice before heading out and apply it alongside RAD advice to ensure access issues don’t develop.

Craig y Gwynt

Snowdonia

Superb Grit with unusual Quartzite bands over-looking Tremadog bay, and although the routes are short the aspect and atmosphere more than make up. If soloing a mat is fairly essential as the landings are generally grim.

Parking and Approach

Take the first right travelling south from Trawsfynydd. The road soon forks- go right. Park thoughtfully on the roadside north of the farm at Tyn Twll, take the obvious path west to a wide col (1.5 km). Crag now on the right.
Area information

A wide range of cliffs - mainly traditional and multi pitch inc. the popular Llanberis Pass, Idwal Slabs, Clogwyn du'r Arddu and Cwm Silyn cliffs, but also outlying outcrops such as Carreg Alltrem. Many crags are on CROW access land - but not all especially some of the outcrops which lie on private enclosed land. Most of central Snowdonia is both designated an SSSI and also is an European Special Area of Conservation on account of the upland habitat and associated geology and plants found here.
