Full Metal Jacket at Taff's West on a rare dry day © myrddinmuse
Tends to stay wet after heavy rain; can be vegetated. Essentially a sports crag. Pitches up to 24m.
Re-bolted in 2010 although looks and feels very new providing a good sports climbing venue. Similar in scale and type as The Roadside Crags at Dinas Rock .

As for Taffs Well (East) to the roundabout below that crag, then turn L to Radyr, then R at next roundabout. 0.5mi further on the L is a blocked quarry track. Park in small housing estate on the R (gwaelod-Y-Garth, Heol Berry).
Take faint path up through woods to a good track: follow to small pinnacle with crag behind.Best to get there early to avoid parking problems.This is due to the fact that people leave there vehicles there while they go off to work.Does get very busy!!!!!
The owners of the site (Cemex Ltd) have approached the BMC to advise that this crag is within and forms part of a larger site that is an active and working quarry. They are legally bound by the Quarries Regulations 1999 to ensure that they take appropriate steps to prevent public access to the site, and have requested the BMC to inform climbers that climbing is not allowed at this site. Discussions with Cemex are ongoing to attempt to resolve this situation, but in the meantime climbers are advised to maintain a low profile and if asked to leave to comply with Cemex staff's requests.
