Although generally small and scattered the wonderful rock texture and the setting high on the hills over the Mawddach estuary make this a worthwhile venue. All the boulders are near parking, the longest walk is 5 minutes.

Pared Y Cefn Hir is the steep hillside to the north of Cregennan lake and has a daunting west facing cliff. This was finally breached this year by James Dexter with an E3 6a through the less steep section right of the main overhangs. James has also toproped the crack running direct through the overhangs and reckons it hard E5 6b.Just below the main crag is a wonderful 7m shield of clean rock, the Pumice Stone, which has 3 lines at present, the hard central line being the most challanging at E3 6a. Beside the carpark by the lake is a collection of boulders which have yielded some good problems.
