Rocktype Sandstone (hard)
Altitude 206m a.s.l
A quarry near Caerphilly. One of the shortest walk-ins in South Wales thus promises to be a super convenient sports venue and possibly some very easy trad. A good venue for beginners and first time outdoors. The 'Block' should provide entertainment for the bigger boys.
Beware of glass in the bottom of the quarry.
NGR: 311800, 190800 (ST118908)
The quarry locates to the rear of High Street, Senghenydd. From the A470 take the Caerphilly turn-off past the GE Plant. Follow the road (A488) across the first roundabout and turn left towards Abertridwr at the second roundabout. Follow the B4263 through Abertridwr and into Senghenydd. At the cenotaph turn right onto High Street and park on the left at it's junction with Stanley Street. Go through the gap in the housing opposite and follow the lane right and then a path on your left leads directly into the quarry.

|Had a good climb here on the weekend! It was only my second time climbing outside, without a qualified instructor, and it was ideal for building confidence in leading without supervision. The crag is really easy to find and to get too. Most of the climbs here are pretty easy but if your new to climbing outside I'd highly recommend it. If your climbing at higher grades though you'd probably be better off looking elsewhere.|
