Crag information
Climbing Area: Wales Rock Type: Limestone

Within National Park: No Year Developed: 2000

The climbing is within a working quarry and much of it lies directly above a well-used access track within the quarry. The owners and quarry operator "Tarmac" have made it abundantly clear that they cannot allow climbing on the site while quarry operations are still active due to health and safety issues. They are open to discussions about a possible access agreement for when the quarry operations are due to end in some 10 years time but at this time there is no access for climbing and the site is actively patrolled by security staff and CCTV. It's recommended that climbers avoid this site for the foreseeable future
