Subterranean Sidewalk (6c+) on Red Wall.

Mussel Bound (7a) on Red Wall.

Character: A massive quarry situated in the rain-shadow area of the Welsh borders, this cliff offers a wealth of long sports routes and an excellent selection of traditional routes. The sports routes are all under review for regearing and the trad. routes are excellent in their own right.

This is a perfect stopping off spot on or to North Wales, as a superb winter venue or as a retreat from the mountain crags when the weather closes in.

The Climbing:

Red Wall: A steep wall with very long sports pitches. Stays dry through rain and gets any sunshine until about 3pm. A superb winter venue.

Black Wall: A black, off vertical wall with classic face climbing with trad. gear. Some fine technical climbing and Black Wall is not to be missed.

Grid Iron Wall: A massive wall currently being bolted up to give some very long sports pitches. Face climbing throughout. Can take a little seepage after rain.

Nomad Wall: A magnificent wall set high up above the quarry floor. Fine trad. Routes said to be reminiscent of Lord of the Flies. Three major classics.

Bay Wall: A pleasant new wall tucked away in the back of the quarry with a good selection of low to mid grade sports routes.
