About Castell Cidwm (OS):

This is an awe inspiring cliff, with about 15 routes rated VS and up with reasonable protection. The cliff seems a lot bigger than its 180 to 200 feet, especially when climbing on the steep right hand section, where the easiest grade is E3. Southeast facing with an incredible view. Bring the cameras for this one.
Nearest town or city: Caernarfon
Directions: OS115 GR 550 554 248m
Six miles southeast of Caernarfon. Drive down the A4085 from Caernarfon to Betws Garmon. One mile later, just past Salem, cross the bridge on the right over the river and walk up to the lake. After about ten minutes, the previously hidden crag will appear up a gully.
