Well, I've had my eye on this one for a fair old time now but have come to the conclusion that I am going to give it a personal grading of inaccessible. My study of Google Earth puts it very close to the edge of the cutting built to take the new road. Even gaining access to that point, ignoring the obvious dangers, would not be easy. It looks like it is an area of glasshouses or alike. I took my photo from Carau Hill Fort on the other side of the road. This gave a good view across to the cliff with nicely exposed geology, the woods on top, the glasshouses, the track up and what looks to be a CCTV mast.
