Talfarach Buldering

Located on the next headland to the East of Porth Ysgo Talfarach is blessed with more of the same beautiful and abrasive black gabbro volcanic rock as Porth Ysgo.

The area was developed a couple of years ago, many great problems have been established. Some topos are available from North Wales Bouldering.

Make sure you take plenty of pads, the landings on some of the problems can be a bit gnarly!  Here are some photos of the best problems we did over two visits. There are still lots more to do, I've still not made it over to area 4!
