During January and February Owen Hayward has been busy climbing a brace of new problems on 'that' skyline grit-like crag at Mynydd y Graig, Rhiw (near Porth Ysgo), further up the hill from the existing Fisherman's and Pant's blocks.

Highlights include the terrifying but brilliant highball arete Promised Land 7A!, Rhiwster Bwster 7A+ and an improved version of Fancypants Traverse 7B+

Mynydd y Graig is a windy and shady spot with amazingly rough rock that gives good conditions even in warm weather - a useful option if the sea level spots at Ysgo, Talfarach and Nefoedd are too warm or spray-lashed.

Check out the links to Owen’s films and topo below for full descriptions and beta:
