Good quality rock, routes up to 12m - making solos a possibility. Used at times by outdoor centres.Many of the harder routes now retro bolted circa 2014-2015. Pleasant short sport and bouldering venue.
Either: park in the layby as for Taf Fechan, and follow the Brecon Mtn Railway for 0.5mi before heading up the hill to the quarry's southern bay;
or: park at Ponsticill reservoir dam, cross the Mtn Railway, head SE diagonally up the hillside, arriving quarry's N bay.
BIRD BAN: peregrines nest here. DON'T disturb them in the breeding season March-end Sept.
|Nice crag with awsum views - shame the guidebook has such poor descriptions of the climbs|
