A small, west-facing quarry that gets the evening sun.
The main attraction is the handful of bolted routes from F6a+ to F7a.
The crag dries quickly; seeps little and deserves to be more popular.
M4 J34: road to Llantrisant, then follow A4119 twds Tonyrefail. After 5mi turn R to Gilfach Goch and Coed Ely. The crag is above and R directly after the roundabout: take the first turn R in Coed Ely; at the top of the road turn R (parking).
Walk to the end of the road, climb over the gate, follow path to the crag.
|What a great crag, all the routes on the main wall are superb|
