RAF Valley Boulders

Climbs 50 – Rocktype Dolerite – Altitude 15m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
Dolerite intrusions dotted around a beautiful lake which is also a bird reserve (Llyn Traffwll). Some of the crags are very Tremadog-like in texture (sharks head - mini routes/highball stuff), but some of them are distictly gritstone like, eg Madam Wen's Cave - 6 probs up to British 6c good landings. Working on topo at mo. when I get the time. [MikeG 10/04]

Access notes
Turn off the A55 at Dalar junction, signposted RAF Valley. Follow the road into the old airmens quarters, old garage and shops on the right, nice old church on the left. Turn left (East) immediately after the church into a road called Bryn Trewan. Follow this to a minor crossroads about halfway along the length of the road. Park here. Turn and walk left down a farm track and after about 50 yds, go over a rough stile on the right. Cross the field, go over another stile and the boulders start here. Follow the path around the lake and find more and more as you go. Much done but much to do still I think.

I know people who have been confronted while running on the same land as these boulders. There has been a 'FOR SALE' sign up for some time now so hopefully things might soon change.

I was thre with a couple of freinds on Sunday morning (Aug 28th 2005) - boudering a bit overgrown but solid problems. We were confronted by a rather angry chap and his wife in a landrover and informed we wre trespassing on private land - told to vacate , there did not want anyone on there land, after a alot of engine reving he drove away at high speed for the conditions. Until further information can be obtained on access I would advise not visiting these boulders - which is a shame as it's a wonderful location. Chris

Found the grid reference to be more like 322768 http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.srf?x=232150&y=376830&z=5&sv=232150,376830&st=4&ar=Y&dn=777 for the map. Following the original map link caused me to finish an hour and a half walk speaking to a (very nice) farmer who told me theres nothing like that here, you want to be on the other side of the lake but there's no way through from here. N.B take the directions next time, they're correct.
