The crag layout has been changed to correspond more closely with Wye Valley Sport 3, the most up-to-date guidebook (but there are already a few newer routes). The upper sections of Networking, Fool's Gold and Stolen Kisses are now listed as separate routes. Log entries of earlier ascents of the full-height routes will need amending (if desired).
A shady, secluded roadside crag with good quality, unpolished, solid rock, and mostly well-bolted sport routes, with just a handful of trad. The disadvantages are limited parking, an ENE aspect, and a dense screen of trees: the rock doesn't get a lot of sun, and can stay damp for long periods, especially in winter. The crag is also prone to revegetation, although it does get a facelift every few years. The Quarry lies within the Black Cliff and Wynd Cliff Nature Reserve area: any cleaning should be undertaken with care and discretion.
Black Cliff Quarry lies next to the A466 between St Arvans and Tintern, about half a mile north of Wyndcliffe Quarry. Parking is no longer possible at the Livox Quarry entrance; however, there is space for two cars 50m back up the road (south) on the other side, at a small clearing by a forestry track with gate: please don't block or obstruct access. From here turn right and walk (south) up the road for 50m to find a gate and the clearest path into the quarry.
