For each crag there is a location map and a description of the style of climbing to be found. Further information is given regarding approach time, aspect, rock type and tides (if appropriate).

The Ceredigion coastline provides good sea cliff climbing on hard sandstone rock. The best climbing is found at Ynys Lochtyn and Pen Bills, where there is a good concentration of wall, corner, crack and slab climbing across all grades.

The popular Elan Valley with its huge reservoirs offers a wide range of trad, sport and bouldering venues. The 3 mains crags in this beautiful area are Craig Caban Coch, Craig Cnwch and Creigiau Dolfolau.
