BETA PHOTO: Dinas Cromlech - Three Routes


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.
