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. When in use it joined the old line below Tanygrisiau.
This quarry opened in the 1830s.
