Crag features

Single pitch routes spread over a number of small crags collectively named Craig Rhiwarth. Most routes in the VS- E3 range.

Please bear with me - I'm in the process of adding buttresses and sorting the climbs SGD

Approach notes

First & second crags belong to Miss Lloyd, who lives in the village of Llangynog which the crags over-look.

Guidebooks

Went up to Rocho Crag today. unfortunately it didn't seem as good as it is made out by the stars in the guide. A long bushwacking walk in for some overgrown scrambling to reach a not very big section of loose bwlch y moch type crag. Be much better to just go to Tremadog! Shame.

Deserves to get more traffic, plenty to go at in the VS HVS E1 range. Closer than Clwyd for Shrewsbury/ Telford based climbers, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Loose rock on both left and right lower tier, watch yourself and wear a helmet! Nice grippy rock, tuff I think but I might be wrong...

Well protected, mostly solid climbing, with a couple of hollow blocks and a bit of vegetation in places. The left-most crag is excellent. Ivory Tower (HS 4b), and Melangel (VS 4b) are to be recommended.

rock is extremely coarse and grippy, with good sharp corners and incuts. top off's a little flakey in places and easy descent routes.
