Dyffryn Crag,Neath © Carpe Diem

Crag features

A quiet crag set high above the Neath valley that has a number of short climbs on generally good rock. The routes are almost exclusively fingery and technical, and what they lack in length, they make up for in intensity. This is a great place to brush up on technique and build up finger strength.

Restricted Access

The site owners (The Woodland Trust) are very concerned regarding thier potential liability and car parking at this site. They wish to state that they do not give give any express permisson for climbing at this site, and all climbing is at the individual's own risk. No equipment such as hanging ropes or quick draws are to be left insitu. In the event of forestry works being carried out, all public acces to the woods would be temporarily restricted for safety reasons.

Parking Issues summer 2017 - please park sensibly and do not park in front of the houses on the approach track. The local residents have had problems with climbers cars blocking their parking spaces.

went there yesterday pm, base of crag very overgrown and lots of loose rock on most routes- needs more traffic to make a nice little crag for the 6a-6b climber

is this the obvious quarry you can see off to the right from the A465 if you're heading toward Swansea way? Just before you get to the M4 j43 I think. What ever that crag is looks impressive!
