Secluded; surrounding woodland may keep it damp after rain. Plenty to entertain the VS-HVS climber - including the arêtes near the entrance which are sunny and dry quickly - and some three-starred E4+ routes; the longest up to 23m.
Very dirty rock, lots and lots of moss so take a brush and visit in a dry spell. Will improve with traffic.
The venue is an Site of Special Scientific Interest, mainly on account of the ferns that grow here (including some rare tiny varieties of "filmy ferns"). No gardening or route cleaning are permitted and it is a criminal offence to do so without formal consent from Natural Resources Wales. There are also protected bat roosts in the vicinity which are of some concern.
