Shipwreck Cove Swansea, WALES
Climbs 36 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 12m a.s.l – Faces NW
One of Gower's finest sport crags! super steep 25mtr routes straight of the golden sand of Rhosilli.
This venue has lots of development still taking place, and in the future will be home to Sport routes of all grades in one of the UK's most idillic settings. As such please respect projects! Unfortunately a few have been climbed prior to the equipper a. having finished equipping or b. coming back the following weekend to climb there work.
A lot of work has gone into this venue and most is down to a few key individuals. simply check the notes below each route listed to find its status, RESPECT PROJECTS, saying i did not realise is a crap excuse when all info is on here! if you find a line is not on here and is bolted ITS A PROJECT, LEAVE IT ALONE
Tidal crag - access 3hrs either side of Low water. Maybe less in large swell so keep an eye on the surf! Parking in large carpark above Rhossili beach £3.00

Rope thief beware,the gearing rope you stole recentley
has seen hard service(pretty obvious)not many would risk using it too even abseil on but best of luck(all you deserve)if you use it for climbing.Will keep my eye out for you as it's quite an easily recognisable "rope"-sad thief.

yes they are closed,mine are too easy for you any way. Warm up on the other easier ones and read the SWMC wikki or UKC before you come as they are up to date re new routes/projects. Better still get some kit from the fund and put up your own.

Good crag. The only place locally to give Pant Quarry a run for its money.

Beautiful beach, shame about the crag. For it to be in condition it needs to be hot and sunny enough to dry the crag but not too hot to climb, a breeze to help with that, low tide to be at 6pm give or take and make sure it hasn't rained too much in the last week or two. Maybe wait for the planets to align and go then

Projects are Closed, sorry
all new routes are close to being sent by there equipers we just need some warmer weather as its baltic at present!
personally i would not recomend this spot until may/june as it get very little/no Sun till then
the exsisting lines are fantastic and well worth the visit
