At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving.
Please proceed with caution though. More details.

Trehafod is a small crag with a limited number of short but fairly good lines. It is handy for a quick hit if passing, or an evening workout for the fingers. Its sunny aspect and quiet roadside location (coupled with the possibility of dry climbing in light rain) makes it a useful standby if all other crags nearby are out of condition.
|Had forgotten how overgrown this gets in summer. Must bring the machete next time, thanks to whoever cleared the way to the right hand side!|

|Nice climbing but completely overgrown and hard grades for sure. Better in winter I guess?|

|Nice, sunny little crag; however, the grades seem a tad mean: that's not just my opinion, since pretty much every route below 6c+ has been voted as harder than the given grade. Variations in grading from crag to crag are to be expected, of course, but better consistency between very similar crags in the same area doesn't seem too much to ask, especially in a hot-off-the-press SE Wales sport climbing guidebook!|
