Elegant Arete (4c), Goitre Coed Rocks © Bunchuk
Goitre Coed Rocks are to be found on the South West facing hillside above the A4059 and Abercynon, between grid references 085958 and 079961. Goitre Coed Rocks starts as a rock escarpment which is initially loose and unappealing until the bay of The Bathroom is reached. The edge continues in sections of solid low walls. The rest of the bouldering is a series of walls and boulders scattered below and South West of the edge, some on the open hillside, some buried in the woods. Goitre Coed Rocks has almost 200 problems at present.

No guides found for this crag
|After blundering around the ferns and brambles trying to get to the rocks via 'Approach B' I would like strongly suggest all newcomers to the crag to take 'Approach A!!!
If you do take Approach B, look out for a lost chalk bag, if you find it WELL DONE! you can keep it.
Otherwise had a nice time playing around on Howling Monkey|

|Would really recommend looking at http://www.abercynonbouldering.wetpaint.com/ for good topo's and pictures. You WILL need a spotter at some of the area's. Would recommend pissoir boulder and crapstone Villa for the best problems and landings.|

|added the routes as they were printed on the topo for the website. Couldn't seperate them into different walls... didn't know how|

|Great rock! Went by myself so did more traversing than bottom to top, thoroughly enjoyed it. Sloping ground below the escarpment makes landings bad as I learnt to my cost when I tried to top out and failed, spotter essential...|
