Can't come to north Wales and not do one of the classics. Solo up and back down, because the route is less scary than the descent. The rock was warm dry and gorgeous

Took a friend for her first multipitch lead. The rock was clean and dry and we enjoyed the climb so much we went back the following week and soloed it.

The fault line is well equipped with good holds and numerous gear placements. Holds on the slabs can also be used.
