Crag features
IMMEDIATE CLIMBING BAN - EDWARDSVILLE XI

Please note that the BMC have been threatened with legal action by the owners over the use of Edwardsville XI by climbers/general public. This crag is known by the owners as Pontygwaith Quarry.

Please give this area a wide berth. DO NOT ACCESS. DO NOT CLIMB.

The BMC are planning to meet the owners but of course the outcome of any negotiations will determine the future use of the crag as a climbing venue. We will have to wait and see.

Retrieved from "http://www.southwalesmountaineering.org.uk/g_book/index.php/Edwardsville_(X1)"

A newish bolted crag that is quickly losing most of it's loose rock due to its' current popularity and proximity to 'Summit' (WICC) climbing wall.

The crag is split into 2 tiers; upper and lower.

It is a great afternoon sun trap!

I used the topos and directions on sportsclimbs.co.uk. Be aware that the road-sign (on A4054) at the southern end of the village of Mount Pleasant actually says "Merthyr Vale". The turn to the track up to the quarry is opposite the 30mph 300m sign before you enter the village. Park in the village and walk back towards Edwardsville and up the track (there is an old gate about quarter of the way up the track). The order of the climbs, on the upper tier, on the topo is not the same as the order listed here on UKC. There are also some extra climbs listed here on UKC. Great crag!
