The climbs are of good quality and follow pocketed slabs or vertical cracks with good protection throughout.Locals have been climbing at the crag for many years but no climbs seem to have been recorded. There is evidence of much recent cleaning activity.

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.
