Cilan Head Area

The Lleyn

A mega-adventure sea-cliff, on the Lleyn peninsula, with some truly awesome and committing climbing. A complex area with obfuscated approaches on steep grass slopes adds to the excitement. However there are also some pleasant, less serious routes on the west side that deserve more attention from the mid-grade climber.
