Cardiff and Newport crags

A collection of disparate crags scattered around the Cardiff and Newport areas.

Dinas Rock

A brilliant crag with some of the best climbing in SE Wales: mostly single-pitch routes upto 30m. Often steep, smooth face climbing; harder routes may need dusting off. Most of the routes are now sports routes. Also, some of the hardest bouldering in Wales.
