Dyserth Castle Slab

Denbighshire, WALES

Climbs 10 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 70m a.s.l – Faces SE

Crag features
A large limestone slab in an old quarry. It faces south and tends to be sheltered. The friction is excellent but the rock quality isn't too good on those parts of the slab where it has a veneer of quartzy rock. The routes have been intensively cleaned and make best use of the good rock. Rock issues aside, the routes (F3 - F6b+) are actually very enjoyable. Double lower-offs.

Just to let everyone know, we were here today and there's a lot of broken glass half way up 36 bolts to happiness on the ledges. We tried to remove as much as we could but without a brush couldn't get it all.

Hi Otis, they are not siezed, but glued closed to discourage theft

May 2014: lower off carabiner & maillon at top of Tegengle/Purple ladies have seized. Perfectly safe, but needs threading, rather than clipping.

Climbed here last weekend, found the second to last bolt before the lower off on Tegengle to be loose. Be careful!

It's worth wearing a helmet here as even the rope dragging over the rock dislodges quite an amount of material.
