A mixture of both natural outcrops and larger quarried faces. Delightfully situated by Caban Coch dam on the eastern shore of the reservoir. Park at the Elan Valley Visitor centre (which is handy for the cafe and toilets) or otherwise cross the river via the Bailey bridge turn left and park at the side of the road. The crag is most easily reached from the EVVC by walking towards the dam, crossing the river by the bridge (beneath the dam) and striking up the short, steep, stepped footpath (less than 10 minutes). Alternatively, from the bailey bridge, follow the path into Cnwch Wood on the south side of the river and follow the zig-zag path to reach the crag in 15 minutes.
The crag contains a good variety of climbing (bouldering, trad and sport).
The crag is on CROW land and there are no access restrictions.
|Lovely, well bolted low-to-mid grade sport climbs overlooking the reservoir. Nice place to stop on our way through mid-Wales. Must buy the new Mid-Wales guidebook.|

|Hopefully the new guide will clarify the exact position of various routes. Quartz Wall is particularly difficult to understand. Abseil Wall is a well bolted short crag. No idea where the trad routes are. Worth a visit.|
