About Craig Y Forwen(OS):

This crag has some superb climbs for everyone in an almost alpine setting. Friendly V DIFFs and SEVEREs up to frightening and exposed E5s. The cliff is split into three tiers, but the top tier provides the best climbing and the most excitement. There are over 200 routes, with at least 80 below E1. The cliff faces southwest and is reasonably sheltered in a small cwm. Well worth an extended visit!
Nearest town or city: Llangollen
Directions: OS117--GR234/478 Six miles NNE of Llangollen. From Llangollen on the A5 cross the bridge in the center of town and turn left on the A592. After one mile, turn right up to the Eglwyseg valley and World's End. After about 600 yards take the left turn to the valley, where you will reach a T-junction after a little over half a mile. Turn left here, and park at the first crag you encounter at the hairpin turn when dropping down into the trees. About 400 yards long, and rising up highest on the left end.
