So here we go Llanbadarn Wall a cheeky little bit of traversing right in the middle of Aberystwyth about 5mins from the University and pretty much smack bang in the centre of town.
My girlfriend who is currently at uni in Aber and myself stumbled across this toe destroying beauty one wet afternoon and promised we would come back for a play.
So here is my write up of what I think could be a great bit of training for the keen climbers in Aber that just what a quick session but want to touch real rock. With the uni climbing wall not being great...... in need of a bit of route setting TLC, this could be away to get fit for those great trips to the crags of North Wales.
This wall is thick in pointing and runs right on the main road, its just over 100m long and about 3m high at it high point. The wall is perfectly split into 3 sections by three lamp posts,
which give the first 3 obvious challenges each section between the lamp posts. Section 1 I have done which yealded 'Protest Predicament' a V5/6 (Font 6c+/7a) So named due to the tachers union protests on the day we went to climb the wall. After these 3 you have the big daddy the full right to left (No idea on how hard) This could be quite tricky due to the middle traverse of the three being harder than the one either end. Then the full tick the there and back. 200m of toe-destructiveness.
More pictures will follow when we get back to the wall and try some more of the problems, plus I am in the process of getting the wall verified on UKC so keep you eyes peeled for Llanbadarn wall in the crag search.
If you are keen on a bit of buildering and live in Aberystwyth trust me keep your eyes peeled because this is a great bit of fun, for some quick fix climbing, that at the same time is very challenging and fun.
