Altitude 400m a.s.l
Llangattock escarpment © soveda
The most popular part of Llangattock. Routes up to 42m, best being Passage of Time (E1 5b**), Cry Havoc (E2 5c**), More Fool You (E4 6a**).
From the car park for the main area, take the track to the RH edge of the eastern edge (small ruin). Here take the R fork in the track to te Pinnacle bay of this section.
|A lovely setting - great views of the Black mountains. Found that all the lines we tried were very dirty and had loads of loose rock. Some good lines but a lot of the rock is weak and friable - topping out can be difficult and there is a lack of belay possibilities at the top. Would suggest trying to ab down routes before doing them to clean and remove loose rock. Lastly lots of biting midges - until wind blows them off. Worth a visit if you're feeling adventurous:-)

|Spectacular setting, beautiful location. Rock is dense and blocky in places.
Most, if not all, of the easier routes (Diff-Sev) have been trashed beyond belief by outdoor centres. I have never seen polish so bad. Apparently even the outdoor centres don't go there anymore as the routes are too trashed even for them. i.e. if you are thinking of this location as somewhere to start leading, look elsewhere.
Anything above severe appears OK though.
