/ Info needed Brecon Beacons

Anonymous on 08 Jun 2018 - 213.205.198.48 whois?

Hi all, just looking for some info, I’m heading up to the Brecon Beacons this weekend and want to introduce my girlfriend to climbing, does anyone have some info on crags that have some easy sport or top ropeable trad routes?

i am staying near to pen y fan so somewhere  close to that would be ideal 

 

cheers Charlie

Morlais Quarries is south of pen y fan its trad but really easy to set up top ropes on climbs.

there is no sport climbing in the Beacons but plenty in the valleys below

If you go to Morlais, make sure you empty your car or the locals will do it for you!

If it's quiet at the mountain railway, park there and walk down to the crag.

A little bit further away than Morlais, but lots of easy sport routes.

Some of the routes in Morlais are horrendously polished.
