Alternative Names: Fron slate quarry
Type of Dive: Fron quarry is a quarry dive that is not easy to get to so not dived as often as other quarries
Suggested experience: Qualified to 40m in cold water.
Travel directions: Signposted Fron and Rhostryfan Google The last part is a track and you will need a good ground clearance or a 4x4 to get up it. Don't even think of coming here in a normal car.
Parking directions: Near the end of the track is a hill and park just over the hill.
Distance from Birmingham: 139 Miles 3hrs
Lat & Long: N 53 4.410 W 4 13.440 Google map
Site entry/exit: You have to scramble down a 100m long slippy rocky path, a rope is a good idea for this as it is very steep.
Underwater directions: Its a small quarry so just explore and surface fin back to the entry point when you have finished your dive. Its a better dive in the winter when the viz is better and the path is not wet.
Air & Nitrox: Vivian dive centre
Site Hazards: Access, Cold, Depth, Altitude, Silt.

Accommodation: None local to here.
Other comments: There are old cars and debris and a blue Buoy at the hut 22m. The best vis normally in the Winter / early Spring. This quarry is at an altitude of 320m so this dive should be treated as an altitude dive.
Pub: None near here.
Cafe: None near here so take everything you need (hot flask of soup)
