Craig Arthur Clwyd, WALES
Climbs 105 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 390m a.s.l – Faces W
Enormous, steep limestone crag, exposed to the elements, routes to 45 metres; single-, and multi-pitch climbs. Mainly trad, but with some amazing fully bolted routes.
Park carefully, and approach as for World's End and walk a further 50m down the road from the ford to a closed gate and a stile on the left side of the road; this marks the Offa's Dyke Pathway. Follow the paththrough the large pineforest and exit from it. Continue by following the trail alongside a rickety old fence, until after about 10 minutes, the corner of a large pine forestis reached, and the edge of Craig Arthur comes into view on the left on the hillside above. Follow the path up the scree slope to the left end of the crag. Please note that the cliffs are off bounds for long periods over the spring-summer for rare nesting birds.
There is no car by the footpath as mentioned in the Clwyd Rock guide book. The only close carpark is the one mentioned above used for Worlds end.
