Crag features

Easily accessible from the nearby road. Beware broken glass around the routes, visits with dogs aren't the best idea. Some routes more slippery due to graffiti!

Good sandstone texture gives excellent grip with no polish.

From M4 J34 follow the A4119, passing the retail park (Tescos) on the left. Continue on the A4119 through 5 roundabouts.

At the 6th roundabout, take the right-hand exit on the A4233, up the hill to Trebanog.

Take a left turn at the main traffic lights in the village, and park in the obvious car park below the crag, which is up on the right.
