Dinas Cromlech

Description 

The obvious feature of this wall is the hugh dihedral of Cenotaph Corner, perfectly framed by its left and right wall - along with the corner itself these walls have some excellent and very steep face climbs (Memory Lane, Left Wall, Resurrection - Lord of the Flies, Right Wall, Cemetary Gates). On the wings there are some slightly more moderate routes, Flying Buttress on the right, and Spiral Stair and Dives/Better Things on the left.

Descend to the right of the crag.


Getting There 

Park at the Cromlech Boulders and hike up the steep loose trail to the base.

Cemetery Gates 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a  Europe : United Kingdom : ... : Dinas Cromlech
Very airy and ballsy route for its day. Surprisingly climbed before Cenotaph Corner. Steep, exposed and strenuous.1) 110ft 5.9. A sensational pitch. Up the arete and bear left into the crack up this then the wall above on generally good holds, no room for error though, onto a ledge and belay (nuts).2) 60ft 5.8. Step right and climb the steep, steep arete and around a little to the right, then up to finish. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
