Chapel Point

Climbs 40 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 1m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
Chapel Point is the closest venue to the St Govan's car park, although it sees much less traffic than its neighbours. This is probably due to a combination of seasonal bird restrictions, tidal considerations and a slight lack of well-starred routes. That said, it's well worth a gander, as the two obvious ticks of Ultravixens (E1) and Ultravox (E2) are brilliant, and the rest of the wall harbours some pretty impressive territory, if not quite up to the same high standard. Alongside the crag you'll find the atmospheric Chapel Cove itself, which might well qualify as Pembroke's most popular tourist trap; random people falling about on slimy green boulders, that sort of thing. It's quite a spot for a bunch of peregrines to hang out.

Access notes
Tidal at the cliff base, exposed from low to half tide.

Bird ban: Feb 1 - July 31, EXCEPT if birds have not nested by May 31; check notices.

Park at St Govans; straight ahead gets you there. Abseil or walk down via Chapel Cove (no climbing allowed there).
