Crag features

Bosherston Head is the broad headland between Huntsman's Leap and Saddle Head. The three main areas offer a great diversity of climbing. For those who lead E2, the Keelhaul Wall is a good place to head for. If scary E5s on slippery rock are more your bag, then you may also find a few tasty numbers here. If you are after technical E2s and 3s, in the morning shade, at high tide, then the Ivory Tower is the place for you. However if you are really in search of emotional and soul searching leads, of E4 and above, on wonderful rock, giving you an experience which you will be talking about for years, then you need look no further than the Star Wars Area.

Approach notes

Park at St Govans and walk west past Huntsmans Leap. Bosherston is the next headland.
