CRAIG YR YSFA


Craig yr Ysfa is an excellent mountain crag, which unlike many in this area, gets a reasonable amount of sun. There are several fine routes across the grades here but the best are Amphitheatre Buttress, Mur Y Niwl and Aura. There is nothing quite like ascending the great Amphitheatre Buttress at dawn as the sun rises on your back.
