Access notes
drive down through the caravan park of (Allens) Sunbeach just south of Llwyngwril in Meirionnydd: park and walk south along the beach for 300 m: gates close 6 pm so it is better to park in a good layby further south on the main road 300 metres past the Sunbeach entrance : It is possible to then walk acrosss the gated level crossing down into the caravan park: also possible is to park outside the gates at the entrance to the park.

We arrived at the crag at 1-1:30pm. The tide was in on the first part of the crag, but if you walk up and over the grass you can get to the middle part of the crag easily (little down climb in the middle) and climb there at this time :)

thanks for that mat and great to meet you two . we do have some more lines to bolt up and the best place to send any donations to is the north wales bolt fund. Chris Parkin is in charge of all that and he has been very helpful and supportive for bouldering I also recommend Creggennan lake above arthog for the views and the quality of the rock and no worries about tides . There is a topo on the midwalesclimbing.com site terry

Great little crag. Nice routes (that I tried) and bouldering looks amazing. Also helped by amazing setting and friendly locals! Do you have a bolt fund or anything set up Terry? Happy to drop some money in there to help out. I definitely owe you guys one anyway after the rescue! hope to be back down next year
