Stu on the brilliant Cream Seam © Richard Hession

Crag features

Steep terrain with many large blocks. The landings can be very mixed from complete death to fairly safe! There are highballs, aretes, long traverses, steep faces and steep cliffs above (some that look rather suspect). It gets a lot of sun in the morning and early afternoon and is fast to dry.

Approach notes

A long approach by foot is made after parking in the village of Y Rhiw (turn left down a deadend track and after 200 yards, park in the layby before the farmers gate on the left). Go down the road and left uphill through a large gate above a farmers house and follow the obvious path towards the coast. The best approach to the boulders is found at the end of this path, coming down to a sheltered area (left of the billy boy arete area if you are facing out to sea).
