Barmouth Quarry

Crag features

the BMC access officer for Cymru has discussed access with the National Trust:

The walls and slabs reach 52 meters in places .

The top 20 metres of the walls and slabs are vegetated and easy angled in places so at present resin lower off anchors are being placed at the 20--25 meter point to allow leaders to lower off at the point where the good rock ends . These anchors have not been placed to facilitate toproping. This quarry should only be used by experienced climbers due to the unstable nature of the top sections .

Also being so close to the town it is advisable not to make a nuisance of ourselves etc

Absolutely cracking venue for catching the early morning sunshine! Rock is for the most part solid other than the line of Zeus which is loose in places..
