CLOGWYN DU'R ARDDU


Cloggy is an amazing place, a grand cathedral for climbers to make pilgrimage and follow in the footsteps of the founding fathers. The rock is never quite dry enough, and never quite clean enough to make the routes feel easy. But, on a day when the weather is just good enough to allow ascents to be made, it feels like you have taken a gamble and won. This is truly a crag for those searching out mountain adventure, and when planning ascents of any of the routes here, one would be well advised to be operating comfortably at the chosen standard.
