Taffs Well PinnacleMid Glamorgan, WALES
Climbs 9 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces W
The pinnacle offers predominantly bolted routes of low to moderate difficulty, ideal for clubs, groups and beginners alike.
The pinnacle is predominantly seepage free and the routes generally follow slabby groove lines with occasional steepenings.
This is a new crag in an urban situation. No permission to climb has been sought or granted. Please maintain a low profile as there are residential gardens within earshot.
As with any new crag, recent cleaning of the rock has been undertaken to remove both dangerous loose rock and invasive plants which would continue to break up the rock. There may be a limited amount of dust or ivy present on your chosen route, if this is a major problem for you, please take the time to clean it yourself.
The crag is frequented by the ubiquitous midge so be aware and take the usual steps to avoid being eaten alive...
Climbs at this crag
From the A470 roundabout on which Taffs Well Main is situated drive north towards Taffs Well along the A4054 Cardiff Road. After 300 m take the first right, before the traffic lights, onto Ty Rhiw, which goes over the A470. After a further 350 m turn left into Forest Road (to Robert Price) and park considerately.
Opposite the T-junction is new woodland, enter this at the side of a low wall. The pinnacle is straight ahead of you, about 50 m from the road. See map.
