Rocktype Sandstone (hard)
Altitude 100m a.s.l
Abbey Butress just out of reach © Carpe Diem
Visible from M4 as you pass the Port Talbot steelworks. Exposed position can make it cold on windy days; sunny in the afternoon. Solid rock, a three-star (if small) crag, with routes up to 20m. A good spread among the limited grades on offer.
M4 junction 30: head for the steelworks. At the traffic lights turn L. Pass Old Surgery pub on R and turn L up The Incline road, opposite. Follow past a school (under motorway). Park carefully on the side of the road leading up to the bungalows.The Grass at the top,opposite the bungalows in now part of the gardens( dont think tyre marks would be appriciated)
Take path on the W (L) of the bungalow up the hillside to a track; crag to the R.
|Path cleared to the crag as of 12th July. Still needs some work but its passable now. Get up there before the jungle grows back and make the blood shed worth it!|

|Port Talbot's answer to Millstone. The rock is as solid and the cracks as hard as gritstone.
We spent a good hour whacking a path up to the crag. Follow the path below the crag to where the quarry peters out. Follow the bushwhacked path up a rising line back towards the crag.|
