Merthyr Buttress

The crag now degenerates into a gully with a set of ladders in the back. Keeping at this level and 50m to the left brings you to a small buttress with a handful of routes. Worthwhile for a stop off to and from the main crag with two good routes. Trees are used for the descent points.

2. Officer Dibble E4 6b

3. Unnamed VS 4c

4. ID Proof (4) short wall to right
