An old railway bridge with four cracks at the corners varying from finger to hand jam sized cracks. One side you climb right above the pavement so spotters are highly recommended to stop you from falling into the road, the other side can be climbed safer but still spotters recommended. The problems are 4 meters high so a bouldering mat would be recommended to soften the fall.

From the M4 turn off at J34 and head towards Llantrisant, go striagh on at two sets of traffic lights and turn right at the roundabout towards Pontypridd, straight on at the next roundabout, past a petrol garage on your right, straight on at another roundabout.
