Crag features

The best cliff in this section of the Gower Coast (Horses Cliff to Port Eynon). Named for the wrecked ship's boiler visible at low water. Groups use this - you may have to share. Single-pitch routes up to 24m; the E2s are cheap (and flattering) ticks, no harder than E1.

Approach notes


Take the A4118 tw Port Eynon, but turn R to Overton village. There is limited parking here. (Previously you could take a lane (SS 455 853) W along the clifftop to park, but beware farm vehicles - however there is now [9/02] a locked gate at the start of the lane.)

Walk along the lane and cross the stile and take the second valley on the L. The cliffs are to the L when facing the sea.

Just been to this crag, quite good, not many climbs, but some nice routes. Parking is very limited and some of the locals will not like you parking in the village, as we returned to our vehicle a rather crazy and seething old lady screamed at us until we left (literally).

Looks alot bigger on first visit until you do your first climb, as the first 8m are scrambling. Recieves alot of traffic from groups (understandably) lots of low grade climbs, generally solid rock except for a few pieces at the top. Gear is generally awkward to place on alot of the routes. Nuclear Arms, as the guide describes is a one move wonder, but the gear is bomber and the peg didn't look that bad. Found the first part of the route (Termination HVS,5a) more scary than the E2 part!
