Summary

Crag features Two tiers of generally sound quality limestone, averaging about 10m in height.

For Quarry Wall: Its situated on the right-hand side of the road if you approach from ruthin and is a couple of hundred yards from the pwll glas sign at the beginning of the village. The crag although one of the most roadside venues in the area does require a 10 min walk due to where you need to park. this should be either the large laybe on the left handside in the village itself or just the otherside of the bridge which leads to Llanfair dc.

Approach

Approach notes Take the A494 from Ruthin south towards Bala for about 3 miles until you reach Pwllglas at a large lay-by on the left hand side. Park here and walk back towards Ruthin for about 100m to a turning on

the right. Follow this lane, passing a renovated mill, over an old railway bridge and past several houses until the road ends and a public footpath crosses the road, take the footpath on the right. When the footpath forks, take the path on the right until the escarpment can be seen on the left.

Please do not drive the car up the road, as parking there will cause annoyance to the owners of the houses, and thus potentially cause access problems.
