Llechog (Cwm Clogwyn)


A high slab which doesn't suffer much drainage (unlike many crags in the area). Variable quality rock, but the best ones are very compact and sound. All routes are multi-pitch, up to 410ft. Worth visiting for Resurrection (HVS 5a**) - but you don't have to tell them which crag you were on in the pub, just say you did Resurrection.

Parking and Approach

Take the Snowdon Path from the Rhyd Ddu car park; or Ffridd Uchaf. This goes along the top of the cliff - allow about one hour. (Headtorch for the walk back.)Alternatively take the Snowdon Ranger track and Cwm Clogwyn - longer, wetter, but takes you to the bottom of the crag.
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.
