went there yesterday pm, base of crag very overgrown and lots of loose rock on most routes- needs more traffic to make a nice little crag for the 6a-6b climber

is this the obvious quarry you can see off to the right from the A465 if you're heading toward Swansea way? Just before you get to the M4 j43 I think. What ever that crag is looks impressive!

brill little venue, nicely settled in the woods with a good view of the bay from the tops of the walls. Beautiful in the sun, well worth an afternoon climb, beware midges near sundown!
