Access notes
Park at Gerlan opposite the shop, and go towards Ciltwllan and follow the hill up to the dirt track. Walk up and round the bend to an aluminium gate on the right. Through this, follow a vague sheep track that leads to a steep fern-filled bank. Go down to the river and across. The first boulder is a few meters in front, the second one a few hundred yards futher up the river.

The guidebook says to Harrison Ford stylee across the river...make that fall in and watch out for the bogs on the hillside :) Lovely rocks, and either I can't read guidebooks or there's a 3rd boulder downstream of the lower one...150m ish?
