Crag features

The prominent small headland with radar station at its summit provide a series of cliffs which give a number of fine climbs. The high concentration of lower and middle grade climbs, and its ease of access makes this a very popular area.

Approach notes

DO NOT belay on the fence of the radar installation at the top of the cliff. You and everyone else may be banned from the site: the Army takes this seriously.

Park at St Govans and walk west past Huntsman's Leap and Bosherston Head. Approach by abseil or long walk round.

Access Advice

Please do not belay to the radar station fence or fence posts - this could jeopardize climbing at this site. Night firing normally occurs on Tuesday & Thursday but may also alternate to Monday & Wednesday.
