CWMAMAN


Cwmaman is hidden in the back of one of the valleys, high in the Dare Valley. It is a fine little quarry in a decent setting and with some good routes. There are two sections of crag, both of which receive the sun for some of the day. The Main Wall is a clean sheet of almost perfect sandstone and has some of the area's best sport routes. The Right-hand wall has a gentler atmosphere with routes in the lower grades.
