At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Coed Ely is a fine little venue that is easily reached and has a sunny and sheltered aspect. The main wall at the back of a tiny quarry is composed of good sandstone that is deceptively steep and gives the routes some punch given their modest length.
Reports have been recieved that climbers have been approached by the landowners and been told to leave (Spring 2018). If approached please be respectful to the owners and report to the BMC. The crag is located on private land which is not open access land and is not on a public right of way.
|What a great crag, all the routes on the main wall are superb|
