About Carnedd Y Filiast (OS):

There are about 20 good, long routes in the DIFF to HS grades here, each about a thousand feet long. The routes are known for being poorly protected, snow pickets have even been used for protection. The quality of the rock improves with the height ascended, as does the satisfaction of being a "real" mountaineer.
Nearest town or city: Bethesda
Directions: OS 115 GR SH 623 627 Alt. 610 - 800m
Three miles SSW of Bethesda. Go South on the A5 from Bethesda for 1.8 miles, then take the small road off to the right over a bridge, then left up the valley for almost a mile. Park just past a cottage. The cwm above to the right has all of the climbing, the first cliff encountered should be a small, red slab (Russet Slab), then the main cliffs above.
