Unfortunately the run off during the winter means the base of the climbs have a coating of moss which requires a peel at the start of the season.
Climbs at this crag
Beware - the grid ref given in the south east wales guide will take you to the wrong quarry.
If one were to follow the 'direct approach' over the railway line, one would find the quarry alright, but obviously one would not do that because it's forbidden.
If following the indirect approach, from the parking space by the river, head up the hill but after going through the gate as you come out of the woods, BEAR RIGHT down the hill again to find the quarry.
Just a comment on the note above. I found it easiest to follow the path beyond the gate until it forks and head right then. A bit of fighting through bushes and over fences and you should end up somewhere near the top cornor of the crag. Pretty green at the moment.
