A couple of weeks ago I cleared the bramble away from the bottom of the left hand routes. Now much easier to climb.

Nice easy crag. A bit of loose rock and a lot of rubbish around though. Check the South Wales Wiki for the topo and the routes. There is a missing section here: Arete Area. Malfor is after Dancing Spleen, not at the end of the crag.
