I went to a little known crag near Fedr Fawr today, with my lithuanian Friends, for a spot of sports climbing. I had never climbed there before but there were a few routes with stars and in the F6 area. Which would have been great for the group I was with. I had heard that some of the rotues were a bit loose, but that the bolting was OK.
I have to say that generally the climbing was great, although you need some climbing wall guns on the two F6a(+) warm ups. As they are seriously steep for climbing outdoors but the holds are serious big There were some good lobs of some off the cruxes when a few of the team tried to redpoint the routes after working them on lead.
A few of the team ran up the F6b’s and F6b+, then went onto redpoint a F6c+ which was very technical. One of the team also tried the F7b at the crag. Despite the climbing being OK, there were a few too many stars given at this venue, and whilst it was nice to go there and be paid for it. I am not sure I will be heading back there in a hurry. For a handful of pleasant six’s then it is well worth the visit if you don’t fancy the Ormes.
