I spent my first weekend in Gower, great climbing. I went exploring the cliffs east of Golden Wall (southgate) and found this cave with this massive almost horitzontal roof. The cave was really deep and it has a very impressive featureless roof. I was wondering if anyone knows the name of it. I don't think it's Bucketland or Bosco's Den. Any beta greatly appreciate it

Thanks

Ramon

Sounds like Bacon Hole. Climbing is banned there both for historical and for wildlife reasons, I think.

The other big cave around there is Minchin Hole, which has a couple of sport routes but access is also complicated (plus it doesn't sound like what you describe).

In reply to Alun: Agreed - sounds like Bacon Hole. It is the furthest East of all the obvious crags before you reach Hunts Bay (at the top of which is a Farm). Very impressive looking but no access.

Yes I was checking the South Wales & Gower guidebook and it does sound like Bacon hole. Shame it's protected, it would be an amazing cave to climb. Oh well.

I was always (back in the olden days when I used a rope) inspired by 'the divine guiding light' at giants cave, massive roof, exiting though a blowhole!
