Ice climbing in Carmarthenshire - you can't beat it. A nice little bouldering spot, just off the A4069 Brynamman to Llangadog road. Great for learning how to down-climb because topping out is a nightmare!

Herbert’s Quarry – but a bit lower down than the biggest walls with the rock routes.

You can see the top of the ice from the lower car park. From there walk uphill to the first wide track and follow it virtually to the end and then go up one level. Hope it’s still cold enough.
