Carreg-y-Barcud

Climbs 70 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
Tidal. The rock looks like limestone at first but is actually compact sandstone which takes gear (and falls) fine. Many slabby routes up to 100ft, mostly in the low Extremes but also including a number of vertical routes in the VS range. Recommended: Sinecure (E1 5b), Kitten Claws (E3 5c), Beyond The Beyond (E5 6b).

Access notes
Follow the minor road off the A487 to Trelerw. Park abt 300m past the white cottages. Do not block farm gates.

Better parking available for approx 10-15 cars in a small grassy carpark West of Trelerw, about 100m South of where the minor road re-joins the A487.

Cliff approach generally by abseil to tidal platform.

I would hardly say it looks like limestone! Think North Devon and the Culm Coast for a more accurate description.
