Llangollen: Trevor Rocks
This proved popular a few years ago so is worthy of another visit.
Trevor Rocks provides ten limestone walls and buttresses along the escarpment overlooking Llangollen. The climbing is mainly single pitch sport routes but there is some trad, particularly in the main quarry, so you may want to bring a rack.
It’s a beautiful area with fine views that provides a great setting for climbing. There are plenty of starred routes at a range of grades so why not try somewhere different from your usual haunts. Anybody wanting a greater concentration of harder routes could call in for a while and then pay a visit to nearby Dinbren.
Walkers that want to drop in on the meet will also find the area well worth a visit.
IF MEET NUMBERS ARE STILL RESTRICTED IN JULY ATTENDANCE WILL BE ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED BASIS SO PLEASE EITHER SIGNUP USING THE 'INTEND TO ATTEND' FACILITY OR LET ME KNOW YOUPLANNING TO COME.
Approach from the A539 by lanes from either Trevor or Llangollen to reach the Panorama Walk road that runs below the rocky escarpment. There is a large layby at Grid Ref. SJ 233432 below the distinctive square cut main quarry. Other smaller parking areas can be found nearby. NB: Please do not take vehicles up or park on the track that leads up behind the main quarry.
I propose to set up camp in the Over Yr Wall area to start with but we can work our way along the escarpment during the day as the mood takes us. I’ll aim to be there by 10.30am.
From the layby follow the obvious incline running diagonally up leftwards (as you look inwards) to join a path that traverses the hillside below the crags. Turn left along this track and carry onto the left-hand end of the line of buttresses (about ten mins walking from the car park).
