Crag features

The most popular part of Llangattock. Routes up to 42m, best being Passage of Time (E1 5b**), Cry Havoc (E2 5c**), More Fool You (E4 6a**).

Approach notes

From the car park for the main area, take the trackto the RH edge of the eastern edge (small ruin). Here take the R fork in the track to te Pinnacle bay of this section.

Spectacular setting, beautiful location. Rock is dense and blocky in places. Most, if not all, of the easier routes (Diff-Sev) have been trashed beyond belief by outdoor centres. I have never seen polish so bad. Apparently even the outdoor centres don't go there anymore as the routes are too trashed even for them. i.e. if you are thinking of this location as somewhere to start leading, look elsewhere. Anything above severe appears OK though.
