PORTH-CLAIS


The twin-crag setup of Porth-Clais is an inviting spot, with the two compact purple faces offering a choice of cracks, slabs and aretes. The main buttress provides the bulk of the routes, with Porth-Clais Crack and Dreamboat Annie proving to be worthy adversaries. Over on the taller right slab, the classic tick is undoubtedly the superb Red Wall.
