Climbs 14 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude ? – Faces NW
Climbs at this crag
The crag is located between Deri and Bargoed and is quite awkward to get to. Either drive towards Deri from Bargoed, until the crag can be seen up on the left, park and walk in, or take a shorter but easy-to-get-lost way in. This involves taking the left fork just before Bargoed high street starts to drop down and taking a steep road to a right turn immediately before Heolddy Comprehensive School. Go over the first cattle grid to a second, then turn right. Follow this road for about a mile, until a grassed-over spoil heap can be seen on the right about 200m before a small stream valley with a marked footpath. Park, go over the fence and follow the path leftwards contouring round the hill to arrive at the crag. If on foot, forget it. The landowners (Parc Cwm Darren) have requested that climbers phone them on 01443 875557 when intending to use the crag.
A pair of Peregrine Budgies have nested here and the crag should be avoided from 31st March through to 31st July. Re-direct them to Penrhiwceiber.
