One massive slab set a low angle. Protection can be sparse / very run out. Can also be loose in places. Although this crag is generally regarded as rubbish there are however a few worthwhile lines in the centre of the crag.
Retro-bolting permissible with first ascensionist’s permission. Replacement of worn fixed gear on a point for point basis with bolts is permissible. New sports routes allowed.
Leave the M4 at junction 27 and take the A467 towards Risca. Turn right towards Risca (at Aldi) mini, then left at the next mini roundabout. Go through the town heading towards Cross Keys. Take a right turn immediately before the Esso Petrol Station, go up a short steep hill and over a level crossing. Follow the road up round a short bend to the main gate of the quarry on your left. Park in a layby 20 m further on.
