Small crag on Bangor mountain behind the graveyard. Has two main traverse lines at V5 and V8 and a few other boulder problems at V3/V4. In addition I did also notice a single line of bolts. Information about the crag seem reasonably hard to come by!

The quarry can be accessed by walking up Hendrewen Road along the side of the graveyard. Leave the road to follow the graveyard's back wall, a path which is often pretty overgrown. At the far corner of the graveyard continue on until a fork appears. The right fork leads to the quarry pool, however the doesn't provide access. The left fork continues to a bike track. Cross the track and head right and uphill for 20 metres until you re-enter the wooded area on a steep descending path.

The path that follows the graveyard wall is now unpassable as it is too densly overgrown. Could not find any other access after a good explore. If anyone knows of another access point, please post. cheers
