Altitude 6m a.s.l
The south-facing aspect of Crickmail's compact exposed walls provide the visitor with a good number of quality 20m+ routes, including classics such as the ever-popular Aero (VS), and B-Team Buttress (E1). It's a long-ish walk-in, as it falls roughly halfway between the two possible car parks, but it is well worth the effort, especially if you extend your time in the area by nipping across to Mewsford, or Triple Overhang. The previous guide book implied high numbers of sheep suicides on this cliff; the intervening years have seen a marked decrease in this malodorous activity.
Tidal platform on the lower tier. Reached from St Govans or Stack Rocks. From St Govans, it is 500m past the second fence line, and just W of an obvious grassy gully leading down to a boulder beach - Seaside Gully. Abseil or scramble down to the lower tier, or take the non-tidal mid-tier.
A very nice crag with a popular non-tidal upper tier and well-featured rock.
There is a large colony of Herring Gulls which are now on the "red list" of endangered species in the UK, on the mid-height ledge in Spring - early summer, climbers are requested to avoid this section (see details below) as there is now an agreed seasonal restriction on this venue.
