About Lliwedd (OS):

The most traditional crag in all of Wales! A magnificent buttress of Snowdon, a day spent on Lliwedd is always remembered. It is not a hard man's crag at all, but you can not simply stroll up the routes either. About 1000 feet bottom to top, it offers many 10-pitch climbs, nicely separated by terraces to stop and enjoy the view or have lunch. About 100 routes, mostly Severe and up, and good rope management is a must for this NE facing cliff.

The SE Ridge of Snowdon. From the top of Llanberis Pass at Pen Y Pass, take the miners' track toward Snowdon and turn left at the large lake. Lliwedd is the big cliff to the left hand end of the lake.
