The corner defining the left-hand side of this fine wall of rock is taken by Kinberg, one of the Clwyd's easier classics. On the right-hand side of the wall a number of sport climbs provide plenty of technical climbing in a stunning position. The wall is best reached by following a narrow path around from the Atmospheres bay.

A great climb that skirts across the wall from Kinberg to finish up cracks right of the Unknown Feelings overhang.
