I was climbing there a few days ago after ignoring the signs and the owner came along. He fully understood the need to follow the sport and said that as long as we were careful not tho damage anything he didn't mind us climbing subtly. [Tom 8/05]

Tintern is a huge quarry unfortunatly there is a lot of very loose & dusty routes, though if you look around you can find some very good climbing, particularly on the red dust wall. Don't forget to wear a helmet when climbing and belaying.
