Giveaway Project of the Month - April

This kind of follows on from the Dyffryn Mymbyr post really. With my new found interest in the convenience of  classic bouldering, various back burner project are being neglected. With a new bouldering guide on the horizon, its always fun to through some new areas in the mix and see if anyone can establish some quality.

This time its Cwm Ffynnon, source of the first ever Giveaway back in 2009. Now, on the ramble to get to the Super Prow (still unclimbed folks!) I passed this wall.

To help location, contour in round the lake from turtle rock, rising towards a wizard's hat of easy angled slab (seen in the background). Its a shortish wall with a slopey top out and lots of very small directional holds.
Continuing the contour to the super prow, you cross a obvious stream. Now on google maps around this point you see a circle of lighter grass within the heather with a dark dot within the circle. This isn't the next boulder but its in that vicinity (its another 100m or so to the Super Prow). This is the next boulder:

Looking back on these pic's I'm amazed I didn't even pull on. Back in 2009 I was a bit injured and concentrating on cracks, as my pulleys were fairly knackered. I'm actually keen to revisit these bad boys if I get a chance, but that may mean this year or the next. So rather than being greedy and secretive, consider them open projects and get them done (if you want to) less brushing for me....
