About The Gribin Facet (OS):

This is a little gem of a crag, a very good introduction to the harder SEVEREs for the leader in that grade. About 35 to 40 routes from DIFF to HVS with a couple of good Extremes on this bulletproof, 150 foot tall wall. Well worth a visit for the HVS leader.
Nearest town or city: Capel Curig
Directions: OS 115 GR SH 650 596 Alt. 490m
5.5 miles West of Capel Curig. From the parking on the A5 at Ogwen, take the footpath up towards Llyn Idwal. After 600 yards it levels out, and the crag will be due south from here about 800 yards and up a little bit. The approach is often wet, but the crag is worth the approach.
