Clwyd Limestone - Trevor Rocks

Daniel O'Brien

Trevor Rocks is a collection of quarried limestone walls located above the highly scenic and appropriately named Panorama Walk above Llangollen.  The climbing is mostly single pitch sport routes in the lower and middle grades, though there are some trad routes for enthusiasts.

Trevor is a surprisingly short trip from the Manchester area and as such perfect for a summer day-trip.  To get there, follow the Eglwyseg Valley road from Llangollen until a turning, signposted 'Panorama' appears on the right. Follow this for a mile, ignoring a sire road dropping off to the right. Continue until a large lay-by is reached on the left. For those of you of a more technological inclination, the GPS coordinates of the parking are 52.9804, -3.1436.

From the lay-by, follow an obvious incline up the hill on the left as you look up towards the crag.  After about 400m you will reach the foot of the quarry.  The plan is to meet at Suspect Wall where the highest concentration of reasonable grades can be found and then work our way along the crag as we feel the need.

I will be at the car park around 10.00 and at the crag by 10.30.  Hope to see you there!
