Crag features

The boulders at this location contain without doubt, the best quality problems in Mid Wales. Its remote location and interesting access add wonders to the sport that many other venues lack.

A new mini guide for the area has now been finished, it will be available shortly at www.midwalesclimbing.com, or alternatively give me an email and I'll send you a copy. The original topo by Iwan Afron Jones is still available at www.midwalesclimbing.com.

--Online miniguide is currently unavailable, email moderator if guide required.

Approach notes

Parking is roadside at SN 775 879. Be careful not to block either of the two gates at the end of the road.

Anyone venturing into this area is advised to pay extra attention to the dangers due to the remote location.

I have managed to get there on a handful of occassions without getting wet, atleast the rock is usually dry.

Quite an adventure. Take wellies or Sandels for walk in. Does it ever dry out. Amazing setting, could be out of lord of the rings

Amazing climbing for mid-wales. Well worth a visit. Great guide available on mid-wales climbing website.
