Crag features

Buckland Hill: A line of small outcrops with lots of bouldering lines up to about 6m. Lots of interesting pockets and slopers alike. Mostly easier in grade, but also potential for harder problems to be developed.

Bwlch Quarry: Opposite side of the valley is a small sandstone quarry with lots of boulder problems and small micro routes on offer. 

 

Guidebook information: Recently Martin Crocker released a brilliant online micro guide for the area, although the details and names of problems are different to those found on UKC, its a fantastic edition and useful for those wanting some topo's to go at.

Buckland Hill Climbs

Approach notes

Parking on road to Buckland kennels, follow path onto Buckland Hill and stay left, head across the common until boulders appear on the left.

 

For the Bwlch Quarry park in the carpark 200m after the cattle grid and walk back down the road, small path opposite house takes you into the first bay. 

Unless you enjoy tick bites, brambles and unpleasant starts don’t bother coming in Summer

started to love this place. always quiet, good rock, testing routes established and a just enough potential for new stuff !

Hard crag to find in summer the approach paths are overgrown with ferns, nettles and brambles. Ensure you bring either a helicopter or a flock of sheep to forge a new path!
