Steep terrain with many large blocks. The landings can be very mixed from complete death to fairly safe! There are highballs, aretes, long traverses, steep faces and steep cliffs above (some that look rather suspect). It gets a lot of sun in the morning and early afternoon and is fast to dry.
A long approach by foot is made after parking in the village of Y Rhiw (turn left down a deadend track and after 200 yards, park in the layby before the farmers gate on the left). Go down the road and left uphill through a large gate above a farmers house and follow the obvious path towards the coast. The best approach to the boulders is found at the end of this path, coming down to a sheltered area (left of the billy boy arete area if you are facing out to sea).
|We walked in along the coastal path from the layby parking for Porth ysgo. This was a pleasant alternative walk in, as the designated layby is currently a bog!

|The dogs at the farm really did not want us to walk through so we had to go around via a field to the north.
