A delightful little crag which is popular with outdoor activity groups and beginners. Perched on the hill just above Capel Curig, the views down Dyffryn Mymbyr to Snowdon are quite wonderful. The climbing takes place on a clean slab on the south side of the hill. The rock is clean and solid, although it is quite polished. Belays are easy to set up and access to the top of the crag is straightforward.
Elsewhere on the hill fun scrambles and easy boulder problems can be found.
A little further down the valley (towards Snowdon) there are a number of small crags where more challenging routes can be climbed. Creigiau Llynnau Mymbyr is the collective name for a series of steep little crags, which include The Blocks, Clogwyn Wen and Clogwyn Ddu. These are all well worth a look, as is the RAC Crag, which has a selection of fine routes and some excellent low/mid grade bouldering.
The rock is quick to dry after rain although there is the odd seepage point. The south facing aspects ensures a high sunshine quota; consequently year round climbing is possible (provided the sun is out) although this area does get fairly high rainfall.
There is a small car park behind the shops in Capel Curig. To reach the crag, cross the road and follow the obvious path up trending slightly rightwards through the field to approach the hill summit on the right (southern) side.
