Crag features

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.

Approach notes

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.

Access Advice

2015 Update -Kestrels are nesting in a hole between the routes Black Wall and Inch Pinch. Climbers are advised to avoid these routes until the end of July or until the birds fledge. Please note that while this is not a formally agreed restriction, all wild birds are protected while in or near a nest and it is an offence to disturb any wild bird while it is building a nest or is in or near a nest containing eggs or young.

Rockfax App

Available in the Rockfax App

The Rockfax App brings together all the Rockfax climbing information with UKC logbooks and presents it into a user-friendly package for use on Apple iOS devices (Android version to follow).


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.
