The Castle Pembrokeshire, WALES
Climbs 98 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 6m a.s.l – Faces SW
This prominent headland has a series of fine routes on very compact grey rock. For years it has had a well-deserved reputation for desperate hard routes. Even the regrading of most of the old E3s up to E4s in 1995 didn't do much to change this fact!
As with most headlands which project out into the sea, this one can be windy and cold. Avoid it in rough seas. Contrary to the impression given in the old guide, The Castle is affected by tides.
Tidal in most parts, some routes only accessible at low tide.
Bird ban March 1 - July 31.
Park at St Govans car park and walk W.
