Former quarry, very long (157m long). Routes up to 35m. Some dire routes at the LH end. Good spread of grades, best route seemingly Bifid (E1 5b).
Please take/add photos of any new routes, makes verification easier.
Take the A465 - from S turn off A470 onto A465 (tw Abergavenny). Park in layby on RH side just after junction.
Over road, step over crash barrier and follow fence RW for 50m to gap at trench and descent path.
A better and safer option is to park in Lakeside gardens which is opposite Cyfarthfa lake this is easily found by following the tourist signs.Park at the way marked path signposted Taf Fechan,follow the path parallel to the canal for a couple of minutes the crag is under the bridge on the right.
Climbing is currently banned at this venue - it lies within a local Nature Reserve and a legally designated SSSI. It has been reported that climbers have recently cleared vegetation, placed lower off bolts and the clearance of mature trees to re-develop the site, without consultation or permission from the either land owners (local authority) or the Wildlife Trust, all potentially illegal activities within an SSSI, have led to them to take this action.
|Brilliant job on the cleaning and bolting! Will be making a good few trips here this summer!|
