Wrysgan Quarry Incline is the parabolic incline (now breached by the road up to Stwlan Dam) which passes through a tunnel and emerges on the main mill floor of the Wrysgan Quarry, above Llyn Cwmorthin. The incline was surveyed by Charles Easton Spooner.[1] When in use it joined the old line below Tanygrisiau.

This quarry opened in the 1830s.
