Spread out on the ridge are quite a few boulders, some large. A few are individually named, such as Shark Fin Boulder, Split Cwym Boulder and the Neurone Circuit - itself a collection of fairly large boulders almost directly due west from Goog Gap, and which offers most potential for routes.© (mjw)

Given the restrictions on new routes, brushing and bolting, new route activity is limited to trad climbing, and the easy lines (and the hard ones!) have long ago been developed, for the most part. The casual visitor is probably advised to stick to the established climbs, there are plenty to go around. Many climbs in this guide are listed as "Sport" in that they are bolted climbs with no natural gear required (or available) - many of these are truly "sporting" with old-school runouts. Some of the "Trad" climbs have little or no protection, and were soloed on FA. Please be careful - top roping is often possible and often the only way to adequately protect a route.
