Approach notes


When travelling from Brecon to Merthyr the crag is visible on the left above a large scree. Take a left turn signposted Cefn Coed and park in a pull in on the left, by a gated track. This track leads to an old quarry, walk up this track to the first bend just before the track passes under  an old quarry  building. Walk up the steep bank straight up the hill to a very small quarried section of rock with a wire fence on its right hand side (when facing up hill). Keep going up the hill taking the easiest path through the quarried rock until reaching the fence line at top of the hill. Once over fence walk left  through bracken towards cliffs on sky line ( below fence line). Walk along top of hillside passing a large fenced off gully until a tree is visible on the cliff top. Just before tree there is a double stainless steel staple lower of on cliff edge. A 30 metre (60 metre rope) abseil leads to the base. Pull rope. This section of cliff has a hidden quarry below ,near the bottom of the scree .Be Very, Very careful as a road runs under the crag.
