Twilight Tower Walls Access and Layout


These are truly the most esoteric of the cliffs on the Eglwyseg escarpment being of a distance to reach and tucked away in the furthest gully from any of the car parking areas. Notwithstanding, these walls offer a very quiet climbing environment with a mixture of traditional and sports climbs typical of the area. Superb on quiet sunlit summer evening.


The best approach is from the parking area below Monks Buttress. Follow Dinbren Road out of Llangollen alongside the taxidermist shop and at the T junction below the Dinbren crags turn left. Follow this road for 1km to a parking area on the right. From here pass through the gate just beyond and follow the track (Offa's Dyke) past the small cottage and below the scree slopes to the first tributary valley beyond Pinfold North. Walk up this to meet the Twilight Gully Walls.


The crags consist of three buttresses. At the top of the tributary valley are two excellent walls known as the Twilight Gully crags. These receive the sun after lunch and through to sunset. If the path is followed along the contour of the hillside to the left it will eventually reach Twilight Tower Buttress, undoubtedly one of the most idyllic crags in the area.
