As many as possible.
A strong candidate for the most unattractive climbing venue in SE Wales.
Probably worse than Penrhiwceiber Quarry, Gilwern Lower and Machen Quarry.
There is however some pretty stiff competition around for this dubious accolade, and Drumau Road hasn't been visited by the Wiki team yet.
Park on the west side of the B4039, sign posted The Dell.
Walk up the single track lane 50 m to a corrugated tin shed.
Jump over the fence into the damp, rubbish filled, gully.
Follow the shady gully, until the arête rises majestically out of the marsh.
