About Bochlwyd Buttress (OS):

A very good crag. Fairly steep with about 15 routes 100 to 200 feet long, but with many variations possible. Most routes are DIFF to HVS, with excellent holds. A very nice place for the beginner or young leader. North West facing, but gets the evening sun. A hidden gem, well worth the visit.
Nearest town or city: Capel Curig

5.5 miles WNW of Capel Curig. Go down the A5 to a car park half way along Llyn Ogwen. From here, a path leads up the hillside to the crag in about 15 minutes, just to the left of a cascading stream.
