Restricted Access

The whole Eglwyseg escarpment is both a Site Of Special Scientific Interest and an European designated Special Area Of Conservation. This means that any deliberate or reckless damage or disturbance to the features of the site (inc. to nesting birds, vegetation clearance or drilling) could be regarded as a criminal act.


Rockfax Description
A stunning pitch which is the best E3 on the Pinfold escarpment. Delicately climb the shallow scoop (small wires and a good peg). Move up to an overlap, then reach leftwards into a thin crack and follow this to the top. It is possible to finish direct from the small overlap at the same grade. © Rockfax
