Owned and managed by the BMC for climbers, there are very few issues at Bwlch y Moch. However climbers are asked to observe a few points. On no account should the fence at the top of the crag be crossed - all of the land at the crag top is privately owned, including the cliff top path and an agreement is in place with the neighbouring farmer for a permissve path along the cliff top. There is no descent either behind the crag or to the east. If choosing to abseil ensure that a sling is placed around the tree to prevent damage and that you do not cause inconvenience or a hazard to other climbers -"look before you chuck" is the motto here! None of the abseil slings or fixed belays are maintained or inspected by the BMC -so please ensure that you are satisifed with their safety and suitability before using! Camping is not allowed at the crag and there are no toilets at the site -please spend a penny at the cafe to use the facilites (for customers only).
October 2017 - Damage from Storm Ophelia. Following the severe stroms and winds on October 17th, there has been a significant rockfall affecting the Belshazzar area, and numersous trees and branches have also been uprooted or fallen across paths. It's likley that some ledges and cliff edges where mature trees are growing could now be unstable due to the violent swaying and shaking of these trees during the storm. More info in this article.
July 2017 - Yogi area - it seems that there is a large swarm of wasps near the the abseil from this route. One person has ended up in hospital with a severe reaction following repeated stings here....
