Description 

The area encompassing the highest mountain in England and Wales is quite complex, and has quite a few ridges leading to its summit, the northern side of two of these ridges contain two of the most classic crags in all of the UK; Lliwedd and the the much to aspire to Clogwyn D'Ur Arddu (Cloggy).


Getting There 

Pen-y-Pass is the trailhead for Lliwedd and The Horseshoe, and Llanberis is a good base for Cloggy.

This is one of the great Welsh slab climbs, if not the greatest, it's a big atmospheric mountain route, especially on a dank and cloudy day. The slabs are more steep thin edging than smearing.1. 5.10a - From the top of the shattered pinnacle traverse go down and left along the lip of the overhang, passing a shallow groove (used to be a pin here, not sure anymore) to another groove, up this to a large flake and belay.2. 5.7 - ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
