Rocktype Sandstone (hard)
Altitude 221m a.s.l
Dyffryn Crag,Neath © Carpe Diem
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.
Do not park or drive on the forest track by or passing the farm. Park behind the church in the carpark by the large gates and walk 30mins up the track.
See the BMC RAD for access information
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 according to the information in the South Wales Climbing Wiki and Climbers Club guide description NOT per the Rockfax map. Doing so is likely to cause issues with locals going forward. Do NOT park in front of the houses on the approach track. The local residents and farmers have had problems with climbers cars blocking their parking spaces.

|brill little venue, nicely settled in the woods with a good view of the bay from the tops of the walls. Beautiful in the sun, well worth an afternoon climb, beware midges near sundown!
