It's about 2 hours from me, but nearer than Wrexham. Am interested in how it compares?

In reply to Tom Hutton:
Its very compact but there are a lot of routes squeezed into the space thats there. The route setting is good as they have a couple of local climbers doing it for them. Definately worth going there if you are in the area or live locally or if the rain has ruined a Clwyd Limestone visit.
The staff are very friendly as well. Ive just discovered Shropshire Climbing Centre which is an awesome dedicated buldering wall. If you live around Llan or Wrexham that means we have quite a choice of climbing walls with less than an hours drive

I live near Aberystwyth so Llangollen's about 1hr 30mn to 2hr away - hence the question! I use Aber bouldering wall weekly but often travel to Wrexham for something a bit bigger/better. Llangollen would cut 30mns travelling if it was as good?

The quality of routes are as good, but the walls are shorter and the place smaller, dont be put off though, nice little wall and plenty to do of an evening..
