WE’LL ONLY DO IT IF IT’S GOOD WEATHER. The sandstone sport crag near Pontypool, there are 30 routes all fully bolted with lower offs. There are  a variety of routes from easy to hard. The crag faces  South West so gets sun for most of the day it is also very sheltered from any wind.

 If you've never tried outdoor climbing before, you are welcome to sign up for the event, come along and see what we're doing and then either just sit and watch or have a go.

 The first of us to arrive will walk from the car park to the crag at 9:30am. You are welcome to arrive after 9:30 am, but remember to bring the directions of how to get from the car park to the crag with you -  there’s no phone signal.
