Crag features
A great crag in a stunning position,almost a mountain crag feel. Can be bracing in winter due to it's exposed position but less seepage than you would expect as seperate from the main mountain. Some bolt belays will shortly be available to replace/supplement the former belays (tied off earth mound and sick looking pine tree).The old pegs and bolts are in the process of being refreshed.Please respect ongoing "works in progress" many are awaiting their belays/hangers or starting bolts and will be completed with the return of favourable weather in 2014.

Access notes
The crag lies up the mountainside above Treherbert railway station - a convenient way of arriving if on train/foot. If coming by car drive to the same place and park. Cross over to the far side of the railway turn left and follow a track for 100m until a short cut up and left across a stream, then take the track up right. Continue up this for 1/4 mile, until a trail breaks off left at a wooden seat. This trail leads directly up to the crag in about 10 minutes if you are lucky enough to be only carrying a few quickdraws maybe 15 if heavily laden.Take your time and enjoy the scenic walk!

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!
