About Clogwyn Y Geifr (OS):

To most people, this is known as the Devil's Kitchen. It is a crag of mixed quality and gets a mixed opinion from most. It is often very wet, and the climbing can be disgusting, but when dry, it can provide some great climbs. Most of the routes seem to have a serious nature to them, only the VS or above leader will feel at home here. About 45 routes reaching up to 250 feet high, and the "Kitchen" itself can be climbed, though it is always damp. The ridge to the right, Castell Y Gefir, has some DIFFs of marginal quality.
