Owen on Immaculate Wall (7A+!) photos: Hayward collection

Owen on Styx (7B)

Owen Hayward has been a very busy bee exploring the craggy hillside around Bwtres Carreg-filltir in Dyffryn Ogwen. Over the last few months he has clocked up over 60 first ascents, with some very impressive lines up to 7B, and all on super clean, compact rock. The hillside is quite steep in places but is surprisingly accessible once you know where to go.

Highlights include the gobsmacking highball Immaculate Wall (7A+!) of and Styx (7B) a brilliant steep aręte.

Owen has produced a handy topo detailing all of the new lines and how best to access them. Click here to see it, or view it in our downloads page.

He has also produced a few short films showing some of problems – see the links below.
