CARREG-Y-BARCUD


Carreg-y-Barcud is undoubtedly North Pembrokeís finest sheet of sandstone; its purple/brown walls and slabs are taller and more impressive than the regionís other venues, and are home to some brilliant, high-quality routes. The rock here is a compact sandstone, which has formed into huge uniform slabs covered in tiny edges and thin cracks. The Main Wall of Carreg-y-Barcud is the largest slab in the area and has a superb selection of trad routes from E1 upwards.
