Rhossili

Swansea, WALES

Climbs 26 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces NW

Crag features
A disparate area taking in sea-level crags and some short routes. Several separate areas, but all in easy walking distance. A few parts are grotty but most are very good.

Note that Trial Wall and Retribution Wall are on a separate crag page. Sheepbone Wall, Silent Fright Buttress and Wedge Wall also have their own crag pages.

Access notes
Tidal on sea-level crags (which face N), accessible between one and three hours either side of low tide.

Though Worm's Head (out to sea along the causeway) may look attractive, climbing is banned there. So don't: you might get everyone banned from the area.

Park at Rhossili and walk along the cliff-top road. Just before the track makes a sharp left turn, scramble down towards the sea, past Trial Wall.
