If you want to carry out cleaning which involves trees, please contact the BMC access team first through access@thebmc.co.uk.

Parking and Approach

From Chepstow, take the A466 past the race course and then the village of St Arwans. Park at the Forestry Comission Car Park on the R. Do NOT take the side road on the L sign-posted `Wyndcliffe' - this does not lead to the crag. From the old quarry opposite the car park the crag can be reached by foot in 10 minutes.
