The best climbing is on the purple slab. Mostly in the sub-VS range, hence popular (like Porth-Clais) with instructors and novices.
Tidal - covered at high tide.
The bay about 400m (.25mi) east of Porth-Clais, reached in about 10 min from the car park at Porth-Clais. The base is reached from the L across boulders at low tide, or by abseil.

|The 'fake boulder' has been placed, with the support of the National Trust, National Park, the BMC, Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group and local climbers, amongst others. It replaces a mass of crap, rusty stakes with the aim of cleaning up the site and providing a long term belay solution. |

|When i was there early this summer the belay stakes had been removed and replaced by a 'fake' boulder! While great for 'The Crack' and other routes on the left of the purple slab, belays for those on the right are now difficult to arrange.|
