Penberth

Climbs 44 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
Up to 20m good solid granite. Diffs to E grades. Lots of routes described on "Bluedome" - were deemed to be lacking in stature for previous guidebook - good beginners crag.

Access notes
Limited parking above cove. Walk down to the cove and follow coast path eastwards to crown of headland. Go down righthand side of headland (facing out) and cramble down to sea-level. Traverse back right (facing in).

This leads to the outer rocks on the left arm that forms the cove. The first feature is a rocky outcrop on the left, with an obvious roof. It is important NOT to climb on this, as it is covered with greenery (lichen) and to clean it may cause offence to the National Trust who owns the cove. Below this outcrop is a sloping slab with large boulders at the top. Area 1 is on the seaward side of the slab.
