About Craig Cywarch(OS):

There is some very good climbing here, though much of it is in the lower grades. Lots of potential for harder routes if you are willing to look for the lines. The climbing is usually on lower angled slabs, scattered around on thirty or so different crags, all within a mile of each other. There are about 300 routes in the area, of which around 50 are VS and above, with lengths ranging up to 300 feet. Most are southeast facing, and most hold the sun till at least noon. Located high in a valley, they can stay rather cold in the spring and late fall, but there are few more beautiful places to be on those long summer days.
