Summary of site:

Little Reyfad is a hole at the base of a small shake hole in the chert-rich Dartry Limestone. A short, 3m climb leads to another of 2.5m and a further descent of 1.5m on to a floor of broken chert. From this floor there is a further difficult 3m pitch to the base of the hole, which is blocked by chert and gravel.
