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.

Crag features

A very steep and imposing crag, comprised of several individual buttresses, with routes ranging from S to E5, but mainly HVS and above. The cliff is of historic importance as the site of the first ever recorded rock climbing in Radnorshire (and indeed in the whole of Central Wales) in 1950.

All climbs are definitively described in the new Central Wales - Elenydd guidebook.

Approach notes

The crag is on access land. See guidebook for approach notes.
