Altitude 134m a.s.l
A cool collection of walls in the Parc Dudley woods. Some quick drying, some not, Some highball, some not! Best after a few dry days in an East or North wind. Bracken gets high and midges can be bad in summer. Follow the access notes carefully to find the hidden gems waiting in the woods! Keep noise level right down and tread lightly / leave no trace.
Park in the Parc Dudley car park on the way out of Waunfawr. Follow the footpath into the woods, passing through a gate. Turn immediately left after the gate and head uphill into the woods on the footpath. Turn left at the next junction. After a bit more climbing the path levels out on a section of boardwalk across marshy ground. Before the end of the boardwalk look for a cleared path through the birches to your left. For the Fooster and Silver Walls follow this and step over the fence carefully. Across a flat bracken filled open area you’ll see a couple of high evergreen trees. Head over passing below these to find a small boulder. Just beyond this you’ll see the Fooster wall at the top of a left to right vegetated ramp up to your right. For Silver wall keep going on the flat in the same direction for another 50m or so then scramble up a rocky step to a higher flat area. Silver wall is just round the corner. For the Consultant wall and Black Country Crack areas head back to the boardwalk and continue up the path for a bit further until it turns right and starts to level off. Step carefully over the fence to your left and go straight into the woods on marshy ground to find the high Consultant wall. For Black Country Crack turn right at the base of the Consultant wall and follow the ramp up right then scramble up onto the flat area above. Go straight ahead across a bracken filled open area, cross the fence carefully and scramble up reedy ground to find the Black Country Crack area.
Keep noise level right down and tread lightly / leave no trace.
