HOLYHEAD MOUNTAIN


Holyhead Mountain is an inland outcrop of the same quartzite that makes up the Main Cliff, however it has been weathered differently and has a different aspect. The experience is also somewhat different with low-to-mid grade trad routes on a sun-drenched, south-facing crag, above a pleasant grassy base! You'd never guess that it was so close to Gogarth Main Cliff.
