Dyffryn Woods crag

South East Wales

A sandstone sports climbing escarpment above the Neath Valley. A good venue for the 6a/6b climber in a sunny woodland setting. Do not put the climbing at risk by driving on the Woodland Trust tracks but park up either behind the church or the farm and make the pleasant 20min walk to the crag, this also saves wrecking your tyres and suspension.

Parked where rockfax south wales sport climbs directs and was asked my local farmer to move. Park further back down the lane at the start of the national trust walk/ car park
