Description

A brilliant crag with some of the best climbing in SE Wales: mostly single-pitch routes upto 30m. Often steep, smooth face climbing; harder routes may need dusting off. Most of the routes are now sports routes. Also, some of the hardest bouldering in Wales.

Approach

Take the A465 and Glyn Neath Rd (via B4242) to Pont Nedd Fechan. An unclassed road then follows the Afon Sychryd river upstream to a sharp R at a bridge, to car park.Climbers are asked to avoid parking in the residents parking areas on the apporach road, and wherever possible consider sharing transport to minimise the number of cars required. Take the track to the L from the car park for the main face, and continue up this track, over the hill and fork right, then right at the river to get to the main cliff.

For the roadside crags and Kennelgarth, take the right fork. It is also possible to reach the upper crags by scrambling up from the river at this point.
