Newton Head

Climbs 70 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 8m a.s.l – Faces S

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.

Access 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 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.
