Home to the splendid Adultress (E2 5c) whose crux was the cover pic for a previous guidebook. Also has some finger-busting crimpfests for sporty types. The longest route is 27m (Adultress) but most are more like 15m.
This area also includes Retribution Wall. Wedge Wall is just around the corner (to your left on the way down to Trial Wall) and has its own crag page. The sea level crags are located on the separate Rhossili crag page.
Park at Rhossili village and walk along the narrow road past the NT shop towards Worm's Head. Just before the track makes a sharp left turn, scramble down towards the sea towards Trial Wall.

|Felt like there should have been at least one extra bolt on each route and a couple more lower offs (which will not last very long if people top rope through them without using carabiners!) - there is no point in scrimping on bolts.
Also these are showing lots of polish for not very old routes.|
