UKC Logbook Description
An adventurous multi pitch F6 in Twll Mawr! The route climbs the South Wall and is accessed from the right hand fork of the main access tunnel. Start on a vegetated ledge which has a Sycamore tree.
Pitch 1 (22m) - a line of bolts leads steeply with interest up the cracks behind the tree. Some high stepping moves and confident laybacking will hopefully gain the top of the wall and the start of the main slab. Belay bolts on ledge above.
Pitch 2 (25m) - traverse leftwards from the belay ledge to gain the first bolt, follow the line of bolts to a short but entertaining technical groove (crux). Continue to a bolt belay / abb point or alternatively continue up and over to top out and belay on the fence by the main quarry track.

βeta: If topping out most of the fence posts are rotten. There is a larger sturdy one on the other side of the path. Probably best to just lower off.
