Explanation: At the far end of Llyn Idwal, about 20 minutes from the car park at Ogwen, are Idwal Slabs. At the Family Meet in August, Idwal Slabs is popular as there are climbs to cover a range of ages and abilities. The youngest members get to practice on the first pitch of Ordinary Route (first climbed in 1897), while older and more experienced members can try out Tennis Shoe, and the three virtues - Hope, Faith and Charity.
