Sun come round to the right hand side of the quarry in the afternoon. Rock quality is usual slate mixture: mostly very good, sometimes appalling.

Getting There 

Easiest approach is from the Slate Museum car park. Lowest level is through the arch beside the deep pool used by divers. Higher levels are approached by paths through the trees (usually left hand side), then traversing in.

Probably "the most popular Extreme in Snowdonia". Originally given E5 6a, wear and tear has reduced the grade to E3 5c, and even that is a bit generous. First decent runners at 25' with a hard move ro reach them, so damage to ankles is possible. From there it's sustained but well-protected climbing up a crack to a good rest below the overlap at 80'. There's a tricky move round the overlap then easier above, but only tiny wires until the top. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
