Gwent, WALES

Climbs 25 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 147m a.s.l – Faces E

Crag features
Currently the first bolts of all the routes have been vandalised, please bring a long clip stick.

The crag features a slabby broken right hand side, a vertical central wall containing the main sports routes('Big Tissue' to 'Belly Up') and minor buttress to the left.

The main wall usually requires a good dry spell until it dries out completely.

The crag faces east and midges usually infest the place after 7:00pm, so better as a morning / afternoon climbing spot.

Access notes
Although this crag is impossible to see from the road, it is less than 100m from the car.

There is a large muddy pull in, on the western (uphill) side of Celynen Road, in which to park the car.

Walk back (south) for 20m whereupon an unmarked footpath (starting at chest height) leads gently uphill for 50m. The path then meets a disused railway track with a brick lined culvert beneath. Jump over the fence opposite and enter the quarry. Have fun.......

Popped in tonight. Put bolts in to reinstate Mislivings. Started to clean up the trad routes on the left, but needs more work! Good work in re-equipping the crag and cleaning it out folks.
