Bowen's ParlourSwansea, WALES
Climbs 22 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 8m a.s.l – Faces S
The lower crag is accessible for about 2 hours either side of low tide and dries quickly, providing steep climbing on generally good holds and perfect rock. The whole place is a sheltered suntrap in winter, with very little seepage, and in summer the sun moves across crags, so you can climb in sun or shade.

Approach: From the NT car park at Southgate walk east along the road as far as Bosco’s Lane, then out to the headland with the wooden bench. Bear left, facing out to sea, and follow a vague track under a small outcrop then back round to the right past a gaping hole. The crag lies in the small embayment below you, and can be accessed down the steep slope to the west, though a safer approach is to walk a
little further and down the next grassy slope, then work back to the crag.
