Llech Drws Y Coed


Very nice single pitch Slab climbing upto 25m height at Drws-Y-Coed in snowdonia. Excelent friction due to lack of polish and quartz in the rock. Rock is very stable unlike many of the multipitch climbs in the area.

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.
