Far Away Level | North Wales Climbs

Far Away Level

Above the huge scree slope and by an arched tunnel into the mountain it this remote level. Wish You were  here is a great sport route.

Easy Routes can have Bolts Too F5+. Wall to the right of the small through tunnel on the left as you enter the level proper. 2 bolts protect.

Don’t Look Back in Bangor E3 5b. On the wall to the left of the ‘Wish you were here’ wall. Start below the right hand end of a large leftward sloping ledgewith a big rock on it . Climb the pleasant corner/lay back crack to the ledge and step left to below the left facing groove. Set off up this heading to the obvious blocky jugs below the superb hand jamming crack, interesting moves into and up this lead to a small ledge below the final short corner. Good boulder belays behind wall.

A Room With A View F7b. Takes a line of weakness up the wall to the right of ‘Dont look back in Bangor’ through an obvious rock scar. A ‘french’ start leads into a sustained, technical and pumpy lower wall to a cool crux move left to a crack and so to good holds below the rock scar. Finish by exiting rightwards out of the ‘scar’ via a couple of long pulls to a double lower off. 7 bolts protect.

N.B There is an ‘access’ bolt on a small dolorite block above the next wall.

The Faffer E6 6b. Climbs the diagonal crack on the left hand side of the ‘Wish you were here’ wall to a double lower off. A hard and sequency first half passing a tricky to place small wire or two leads to the break and a slight easing in the second half with better gear. (fr 7b/+ish climbing??,pretty well protected really).
F.A Jon Ratcliffe. (11.06.08) Headpointed, all gear placed on lead without faff.

Wish you Were Here F7c. Awesome new route up leftward facing flake.

The Very Old And The Very New C2+/C3
New clean aid route taking the hairline crack to the left of wish u were here, it has a couple of bolts to protect the fragile lower gear placements and a very thin finish.
