Crag features
The large quarry located above neath abbey. There is a large boulder field below quarry and has 6 3star boulders fr font 6a to 7c. Also lots more potential. Access is a grey area and a epic if you dont know the way.

Access notes
Park sensible in the closest dead end street below quarry not up private road at end. But at the moment it is a crag x scenario. Pick a locals brain.

As you enter the open area below the quarry partition area is at the bottom to your left, directly above that the domed block is hillside arête as the ground levels to your left is far left area and to your right first is wonder block just before the obvious black slab and directly above this is the stunning square hanging block of Triassic.
