Climbs 3 – Rocktype Ice – Altitude ? – Faces ?

Crag features
Three highly recommended ice falls. The first and most likely to form at (least the top two grade III pitches) is Virgin Falls. When it is in condition it is the easily seen from the A4061, as the wide ribbon of ice flowing off of the hill side above Blaencwm. The other two falls were known to take a long time to form even in the Eighties when conditions were far more favorable.

Access notes
North West of Treherbert. Turn off the A4061 onto the B4522 follow road to Blane Cwm and turn right just before you enter Blanecwm. Park at the forestry car park. Note that road signs are somewhat spartan after you turn off of the A4061.

Leave the car park by the path heading up the hill through the edge of the forest at the entrance to the car park. Continue up until you get to a split in the path. To get to virgin falls take the left hand turning which descends a little, cross the first foot bridge at the second foot bridge turn off of the path and follow the stream up to the base of the fall. To get to the other climbs follow the original path straight up.
