It is indeed - stunning place!


I've never actually been, but have looked at pictures of the slab, and the route Outside Edge, numerous times in years gone by when I had an inkling to climb it. Climbing days are long gone now, but the Cwm still seems to be lurking in the memory!

Problem is, as with several on the Welsh thread, now I need to find something to post!

Nope, not there, and not even close to there I'm afraid.

Looking down into the Dee valley / Vale of Llangollen, with the Berwyn Hills in the background?

It would be embarrassing if I couldn’t solve that one :shock: - I went to school in Llangollen.

Where is this?

I think we are looking down one of the gullies from the Minffordd Path/Craig Cau to Llyn Cau.

Devil’s Kitchen looks similar...

...but Skyelines has it - looking down from Cadair Idris’s Minffordd Path to Llyn y Cau

Over to you!

I haven't been up Cader Idris.or the Minffordd path so that took a bit of map work.

It's been a while since I was in Wales, here's one from the archives.
