Description

The biggest mountain cliff in Wales featuring fantastic adventure climbing.

Approach

Park at Pen y Pass (if you can) and follow the Miners Track to the lake of Llyn Llydaw. Lliwedd dominates the skyline off to the left. Follow the path that runs up towards the ridge left of the cliff (this is the finishing path for the Snowdon Horseshoe Scramble). After approx. 300m the path dips slightly at which point you can break out right, slogging it out across the hill side to the terrace from which all routes start.
