Climbs 178
Rocktype Quartzite

Faces S

Crag features

Pleasant, less serious alternative to the other Gogarth crags. Somewhat dubious rock on the Independence Slab, but the low angle of the climbs compensates for this. Generally poor top belays - take care.

Approach notes

Tidal. Area denoted SSSI and RSPB Bird Reserve.

From the car park at SH216804 follow the track until overlooking the old life boat station. The coast going left (looking out) then leads to Independence Slab.

Guidebooks

Lovely.
