Crag features

Cwmaman is hidden in the back of one of the valleys, high in the Dare Valley. It is a fine little quarry in a decent setting and with some good routes. There are two sections of crag, both of which receive the sun for some of the day. The Main Wall is a clean sheet of almost perfect sandstone and has some of the area's best sport routes. The Right-hand wall has a gentler atmosphere with routes in the lower grades.

2 through bolts placed on the shared belay of Propaganda / Science Friction,the current lower off is very daAngelou’s and should not be used.A couple of SS mailons would be very useful until I’m able to replace it with glue ins. A higher bolt as been placed on SF ,and a couple of the lower bolts replaced.

Some good climbing here, but the crag is suffering from neglect. Seepage could be a problem on some of the harder routes

Alys Rook had a big loose block in it which has now been removed along with the 3rd bolt that was in it. At presnt there is now a run-out from 2nd - 4th but there should be a peg/ bolt going in, in the next few weeks.
