Rocktype Sandstone (hard)
A textured, purple seaside cliff, and completely hidden despite being just metres below the coastpath. The only downside is the scale of it - if it were somewhat wider (and higher), we'd have more to go at! The colours are outrageous, the crozzly pockets are heaven to the touch, and the two plum-vertical routes are quite brilliant. So: small, but perfectly formed.
Walk 150m east of the Ffynnon Slabs to three craters in the coastal path. At the third/biggest one, follow a vague grassy path down and eastwards, along a prominent line of calcite-white blocks (these blocks will be more obvious once you've dropped down the slope a few metres). This short slope will bring the Velvet Wall into view, where a short scramble is required to reach the base (low tide). It's also possible to scramble to the top of the routes, via the upper slope; two stakes in place.
