Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

A beautiful Spring day at Dyserth Waterfall Crag. © rockcat

Crag features

The crag is about 15 meters high with a large overhang on the river side (F7's - F8's) and a fine slabby wall on the left (many worthwhile F5's). It sits in a delightful aspect on the Afon Ffyddion above Dyserth Waterfall.

Approach notes

Park at a free car park next to the Waterfall cafe which is open all year and serves good food at reasonable prices. Pass the cafe and waterfall and follow the steps and then the river upstream to the crag.

Bring welly boots for the river crossing. It's often tanking over the bridge.

Great crag climbed in November 2014 found 1 bolt a bit loose but didn't have any tools to tighten it 3rd route from left 3rd bolt up just underneath the small overhang

An idyllic venue. So pleasant that it is easy to overlook the two huge tyres that sit under the overhang! Maybe I was tired after too much climbing this week and maybe I'm getting old, but the F5's felt much harder than F5's!!

excellent crag, impressive lines through the roof with some good easier climbs to the sides. well bolted throughout very picturesque!
