An interesting spot that is set high above the vast industrial complex of Port Talbot and the M4. Despite this, it is actually a pleasant place to climb and the restored routes are well worth a look. The cliff was guarded by huge banks of gorse for many years, but a good path has now been cut and the routes cleaned and re-equipped. A visit could easily be combined with one of the other crags in the area for an evening's climbing, or a perfect stopping off point on the way to or back, from Pembroke.
