Three Cliffs Bay

Climbs 41 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
Very popular with beginners and clubs. Easy-angled slabs up to 25m high including two great ***VS routes, Scavenger (4b) and Arch Slab (4c). There is an E4 6a too, but it stands alone among easier routes. (There's nothing in the grades between the lone HVS - which is very short and easy at HVS 4c - and that E4.) Some routes polished at start.

Access notes
Tidal. The sea comes in very fast: don't get caught at the bottom. Approach from the campsite down across the bay. Miscalculating the tide will mean wet trousers, at best.

Guidebooks
Gower Rock (2012), Gower & South-East Wales (2004), Gower & SE Wales (1991)

Went today. Glorious in the sunshine. Met the basset hound. Sat on my shoes, said hello to everyone then dug a hole and barked at it.

The basset hound is still at large. He came a dug a massive trench next to us and barked at it randomly. I've not attempted any of the climbs here but plan too this weekend.

Last few times we went there a little Basset hound that must live near the beach and roams around all day following people around. Name's Bettsy and seems a bit scavengerish, TIP: put your bags etc about 10 meters out from the face. when the tide gets close get down and out this'll give you time another is don't leave food open at the bottom or it won't be there when you get down courtesy of Bettsy... peace out

we climbed and abseiled all three. they go in stages of hardness. i've never done hvs before but i shot up it, it was great but quite hard. TIP: use your toes and don't rely on your hands to much its your feet you use more. TIP: be careful like you always should be TIP: concentrate
