Parking and Approach

Park in the National Trust lay by east of the Silver Fountain Hotel and walk back about 100metres on the A5 to a public footpath through the hotel grounds. This leads to open ground below the cliff. Continue until a cairned/cleared path leads steeply to the base 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.
