After blundering around the ferns and brambles trying to get to the rocks via 'Approach B' I would like strongly suggest all newcomers to the crag to take 'Approach A!!! If you do take Approach B, look out for a lost chalk bag, if you find it WELL DONE! you can keep it. Otherwise had a nice time playing around on Howling Monkey

Would really recommend looking at http://www.abercynonbouldering.wetpaint.com/ for good topo's and pictures. You WILL need a spotter at some of the area's. Would recommend pissoir boulder and crapstone Villa for the best problems and landings.

added the routes as they were printed on the topo for the website. Couldn't seperate them into different walls... didn't know how

Great rock! Went by myself so did more traversing than bottom to top, thoroughly enjoyed it. Sloping ground below the escarpment makes landings bad as I learnt to my cost when I tried to top out and failed, spotter essential...
