The steep 500 foot crag nestled in Cwm Las. The famous Main Wall
(III 5.7) lies on the left side of the cliff, and The Grooves is on the right, in-between there are several hard, steep, and exposed extremes (Lubyanka, The Great Buttress, The Skull).
Descent: Traverse left at the top of the crag to intersect the trail which comes down from Upper Cwm Glas.
Follow the steep trail on the right side of the creek which drains Cwm Las - about 45 minutes hike.
