Lakeside Boulders (ogwen)


A collection of boulders and walls close to the waters edge. They consist of good rock but a soft brush will be of benefit as they are a little on the scrittly side at present. The venue makes the most of any available sun.

Parking and Approach

Park at the ogwen cottage end of the lake. The venue lies on the far side (ie the carneddau side) directly opposite the promontory sticking out into the lake from the milestone buttress carpark. A flat amble of about 20 mins will see you there. It is better to walk along the main path rather than the path along the waters edge for orientation purposes.Top boulder. Lies just off the path on the left and is located just after a white marker post after you have crossed through the wall.Middle boulders. Drop down the grassy rake under the telegraph wires. These are the short problems by the wall on the right.Baby block is the small standing block in front of the good wall adjacent to the lake.
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.
