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. More details.

A large limestone slab in an old quarry. It faces south and tends to be sheltered. The friction is excellent but the rock quality isn't too good on those parts of the slab where it has a veneer of quartzy rock. The routes have been intensively cleaned and make best use of the good rock. Rock issues aside, the routes (F3 - F6b+) are actually very enjoyable. Double lower-offs.
Be wary of broken glass and the detritus from yoof activity in the quarry!
From the A55 come off at junction 31 to take the A5151 signposted to Prestatyn and Dyserth. Followed the road to Dyserth and after about 6 miles (and just after passing the Dyserth and 30 M.P.H. signs), and you have gone into the dip turn right into the “Dyserth to Prestatyn Walkway” car park (yellow barrier). Head out of the car park to follow the Dyserth to Prestatyn walkway. Pass under two bridges and in about 10 minutes you will cross a bridge over a path with a dog waste bin on the right (if the bridge goes over at road, you're a bridge too far). Here there is a path on the right which goes down to the underpass (may be signposted “Dyserth Castle”). Follow this footpath up the hill for about 100 yards to a junction and turn left down a good track into the quarry. The slab soon appears in front of you.
