Conwy Mountain

Rock Climbing

This delightful slab is a popular with beginners and outdoor centre groups. Apart from a couple of lines the rock does not give many gear placements; consequently it is common to set bottom/top ropes up. The top of the crag has numerous stakes, but these should be treated with care. Around ten different lines can be followed, some out on the open slabs or some in the groove features. The grade range runs from Diff to Sev. The rock is fairly solid, but in places it needs to be treated carefully. Access to (and descent from) the top of the crag is easy – just walk round either end of the slab.

The nearby Notice Board Crag is a different kettle of fish; this sheer face which overlooks the A55 on the other side of the ridge has a couple of sport routes (a F6b and a F7b) and two neglected trad routes. Care should be taken when approaching the crag as the ground is steep and quite treacherous.


The rock is quick to dry after rain and has no seepage issues. The south facing aspects ensures a high sunshine quota. The slab sits on an open hillside so is exposed to the wind.


The slab can be reached by walking up the North Wales Path which can be reached from Mountain Road in the Cadnant Park area of Conwy.
