A compact quarry with routes in the low to mid grades. The sandstone is clean and very good quality. The quarry has an open aspect and dries quickly.
The quarry is located above the village of Six Bells, directly overlooking the Six Bells Miners Memorial. Approaching from Newport, follow the Axxx to the roundabout at Aberbeeg. Taking the third exit, following the signs to Six Bells. In the village of Six Bells one passes the Six Bells Hotel. Immediately opposite the pub Cemetery Road rises towards the village of Brynithel (brown road sign with church symbol). Follow this road for a few hundered meters where a layby is located on the left. Park here and follow the road back down about 50m to a rusty gate and rising track. The track leads directly into the quarry.
|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.|
