Treherbert Quarrry (Rhondda Pillar) Rhondda Cynon Taff, WALES
Climbs 17 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 326m a.s.l – Faces ?
A great crag in a stunning position (especially if facing away from Treherbert). Not recommended in winter due to it's exposed position. Plenty of scope for new routes. Some bolt belays are now available to replace/supplement the former belays (tied off earth mounds). The stake on the top is very shallow and should not be relied on as anything other than a rope guide for lowering off. The BB is hidden down the back of the pillar.

Climbs at this crag
The crag lies up the mountainside above Treherbert railway station - a convenient way of arriving if on foot. If coming by car drive to the same place and park. Cross over the track to the far side of the railway, and follow a track left across a stream, then take the track up right. Continue up this for 1/4 mile, until a trail breaks off left after a couple of bends where the track starts to flatten out. This track leads directly up to the crag in about 5 minutes.

Sounds like you have stumbled upon a troll, Kev.|

Where on earth are the new bolts mentioned in the descriptions?! Was there today and the routes are as per the original descriptions. There are remains of old PR's and the odd old bolt but certainly no shiny 5 bolts!
