Description 

South facing and close to the road, so often in condition when higher crags are too cold. Most climbs here are steep, with lots of incut holds.

Getting There 

The first of the three major cliffs on the north side as you approach from Llanberis - after Craig Ddu, which usually looks black and slimy. 5 minutes walk uphill from the layby.
