The map link is now correct. Taffs Well train station is about 10min walk away so great connections from Cardiff / Cynon Valley for an after work session. Roughly 30min from Queen St station to crag!
has a good topo though the grades on here are more reflective of the difficulty, but I can't vouch for the harder stuff!|
