That sounds interesting, Richard. Can you expand on it?

A fine place into that coire…....on my visit to Wales I walked in from the Ogwen road and descended into this Cwm and found the very classical Amphitheatre Buttress...a really classical mainly easy climb. Well worth the visit.

Sadly, no. Just something that I spotted on the geological map years ago. If you look at the first of and101's photos, you can see the crags on the northern face of PYHD that formed the shear line of the landslip, and the slumped area of slope beneath (NE of grid ref 702632).

Looking on the BGS map viewer, with the 'superficial deposits" overlay, the landslip area is in grey, which is used to indicate areas of "Unknown/Unclassified entry". Other grey areas are lakes!

But I can find nothing else about it on the internet, which is surprising, given the scale of the landslip.
