A complex boulder field riddled with high quality problems and all on the finest dolerite. On first acquaintance navigating around the boulder field can be a little tricky, not to mention potentially lethal if it has been raining. However, after a bit of familiarisation, it soon falls into place and the wealth of problems becomes apparent.
Some of the problems have awkward landings - a team visit with lots of pads is the best way to appreciate the venue.
Any problems that face away from the sun can be slow to dry after rain, although there are plenty which dry quickly. In general it is best to only visit after at least one dry day. During the summer it can get very midgey here.
Cars may be driven up the Crafnant Valley and parked inside the last gate just before the Mynydd club hut is reached at Blaen y Nant (OS ref. 738 602), but not at the hut itself.
NB. A note of caution for visitors during the wetter months: be wary of parking on the lower right side at the road head. The ground here is very soft and vehicles can get stuck. A better option is to park on the left, although it is worth chocking your wheels.
The crag is approached by heading towards the col at the end of the valley, before turning up right to reach the obvious boulder field beneath the crag.
