Drumau Road, Kilvey Quarry, Llandarcy, Red Jacket Pill, Seacombe Slab


A slab. Unfortunately it is reported that this crag is practically inaccessible due to the dense undergrowth.


The best place to park may be at the top of Robert Owens Gardens, opposite the T junction is a long set of concrete steps. These steps lead to a track, follow this right for 200 m. The crag is 100m east along the hillside from this point. Don't forget your strimmer.


Lower offs.
