Crag features

Steep and serious E face, but also good climbing on the lower tier at the W end where there is plenty to satisfy climbers up to E1. The E face is all E3-5. Routes up to 130ft.

Approach notes

Park at St Govans car park. The first headland W. Abseil probably preferable to the Diff scramble down. Routes should be exposed even at high tide.



The famous Pembroke Rockfax has returned with this glorious full-colour version packed with classic routes and all the wonderful features that you have come to expect from Rockfax. It is now twice the size of the old 1995 book and has some of the biggest and clearest photo-topos that have ever been published in a UK guidebook.

The shelf part way down the cliff is easy to get to and provides about the only place to boulder in the area. It\'s also a good place for absolute beginners to have a go top-roping as the routes are easy and you can always walk back up if you\'re not able to climb. Very popular with school clubs for this reason.
