Hollow Caves Bay

Climbs 66 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
This large bay has the huge huge square inlet of Box Zawn with its set of desperate hard routes on its back wall. Further along are some more steep walls and buttresses which may ultimately give a few challenging deep water solos.

Split into a number of zawns facing various directions. Routes up to 130ft, with the best being at E4 and above, though there is plenty to entertain the E1 climber.

Access notes
Tidal on most routes - accessible at low to mid tide only.

Park at St Govans and walk W. The bay has Quarry Point to the W and Saddle H (with its radar station) to the E.
