Climbs 40 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 364m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
A long escarpment above the A470 3 miles north of Merthyr. There are some older routes of dubious quality and considerable scope for new routing. Checked in February 2008, the crag suffers from extensive ivy growth at the top of the cliff as well as being loose in places. It is advised that any prospective new routes be thoroughly cleaned before their first attempt!

Note, watch yourself on the top outs as it is a scree bank up there that hurtles debris down on your seconder!

Access notes
Follow the A470 past the a470/A465 interchange for about 1 1/2 miles. The crag is clearly visible escarpment up on the right. Park appropriately and scramble (it's a long scramble!) up to the base of the crag.
