An extensive and generally broken set of natural sandstone crags overlooking Troedyrhiw. There are a number of pleasant VS climbs up the centre of each buttress done by John Harwood, without fully recorded details. There is a buttress at a lower level at the right-hand end which comprises of a smooth slab on the left, and a bulging tower.
Approach the crag from the 4054, travelling northward, by taking the first (acute) right-hand turn immediately before Troedyrhiw and parking on a parallel unmetalled road after a left turn. The crag is 60m up the hillside, above a small reservoir.
- Solo Para Tos Zapatos - 12m, E4,5c
Take a direct and unprotectable line up the centre of the tapering slab. A long stretch for a crux at the top but the rock is perfect.
- Snow Jest - 12m E6,6b *
The bold, bulging tower. Ascend a crack to an off-balance shelf. Launch out left (superb Rock 5 placement in a slot) and turn the arête to gain small fingerholds in the left-hand face. Make a committing crank for the horizontal crack and pull out right onto the arête to finish.
