Three areas on the same outcrop.
White goods (steep section)
Kitchen Garden (found 2mins right of white goods. Slabby/vertical)
Power Pact (Steep Section closer to the main road, see Access)
Nearly all of the routes have been bolted assuming that the first bolt will be clip sticked (stuck?) prior to an ascent.

For a quality topo visit
The area is situated next to the golf course in Pwllglas on the A494.
Follow the A494 west from Ruthin, once past the Pwllglas sign take the second small road on the right just after the second 40 limit sign. Follow the steep little road up past a crossroad until you come to a bridle path on the right. Parking on the left just below this. 2min walk up the bridle path. As I said the crag is next to the golf course so if abbing off the top try not to disturb them ...we don't want to upset them. Helmets at all times! They're not that good a being golfers. The crag is not used for any other climbing as there are large silt layers throughout and has most definitely not been set up for "posed Pictures". Try it, it's good fun.
Access for White goods
As Above. There are birds nesting in two areas at white goods so please do not climb on Jaz or Tumble in spring to early summer.
Access to the kitchen garden area.
Park as for white goods take the bridle path up the crag and turn Right at the narrow path. Follow this for 2 mins.
Access to Power Pact.
Park At white goods (do not park outside the houses closer to the main road) and walk back down the road for 5 mins until houses apear on the right. Just before the drive way of the first house there is a steep muddy bank. take this and the overgrown path for 2 mins. please be discreet at the area as the home owner is not very welcoming.The land is owned by the council.
|As of mid-April 2013, the top anchors in lots of routes are poorly equipped in the sense the maillons are too small and weak, often those that should not be used in any climbing activity but abseil. Therefore it is highly advisable to take your own gear and use them for the top-anchors while you use them to climb, if you find those weak maillons. And of course, you should not be lowered off those maillons after you lead - you should abseil off. If you can do a bit of your contribution, namely replacing those poor maillons with fully-certified ones, that will be great. This is a premium crag, we should keep it in good condition and would not like to hear tragic accidents!|
