Crag features

Pembrokeshire's finest bouldering, on the rocks that help to make up Stone Henge. The rock is Preseli spotted dolerite, which climbs similarly to gritstone, but with more holds! Extremely exposed and fast drying. Many of the problems may require several mats for the landings. There are many large puddles on the walk-in so wellies are advised.

 

Many new problems are yet to be found so have a look around! The next classic might be waiting! Upload photo and description of any new boulder problems.

Approach notes

When heading from Llanfyrnach to Crymych, just before reaching Crymych, turn left on to the A478, and take the first right. Follow this road and park in the layby from where you can see a large rocky hillside and a plantation on the right. Head up the track opposite the layby, then turn left through the gate, following the wall uphill. 

The first area can be found by going through a gate into the field left of the wall, and the other areas are found by continuing up the hill, staying right of the plantation.
