Climbs at this crag
* Climbs listed in red are waiting to be checked by a crag moderator, and may not be accurate.
The guidebook is useless about the approach details on all counts: Overall map is wrong (underestimates distance and misses off several track junctions), photo view is wrong (shows arrows on track pointing wrong way) AND the description is wrong (no stile, doesn't mention track leading off, misses out details).
Thus: Follow the minor road off the A483 opposite the toll bridge for a couple of miles until it forks and both tracks are gated, park car. Walk along the right hand forestry track for 1.4 miles, the crags are visible on the right just before this point. There is a grassy track cutting back diagonally rightwards, this is just before the second small stream and the main track curving left then up and right. Follow the grassy track until it deteriorates in 100m, then take a faint path leftwards up the hillside, over a large wall, and to the crags.
