Pumpy moves on Corrugation! © Jamie Skelton

Crag features

Sometimes used by outdoor centres (consider yourself warned). Routes up to 12m, Ideal for sub-E1 climbers seeking a bit of seclusion... though the best route is a really good E1 called Corrugation

Approach notes

Leave the A465 at Dowlais roundabout (Asda supermarket). Past superstore entrance, turn L, then L again, then R. Take the track through buildings and horseboxes and then R up a potholed road for 1mi to the quarries.

Or: park in Pant Cad Ifor car park (SO 062094). Take the Garth lane (30m R from the pub), through farm, through gas pumping station, to the potholed track/road.

The guide is correct, however there are some large gaps between routes that aren't made clear in the descriptions.

assuming we were at the right crag the route discriptions are completely wrong in the guide for any of the sections. the only feature reconisable was the E1-'Corrugation' the obvious arete in section 2. working left and right from this feature nothing seamed to fit guide book descriptions. its a shame the guide seams so inacurate, its a lovely little crag. could any one enlighten us as to if we were in the wrong place or the guide is so inacurate.
