Access notes
Bird ban Feb 1 - July 31.

Tidal: access to the boulder base for two hours either side of low tide. Retreat difficult. (Smart to check from Mowing Word where to set the ab ropes.)

From Stackpole Head car park take the coastal path. Abseil in, or for the determined, take the LH (facing sea) of two ridges in the bay between Stackpole Head and Mowing Word.

Don't abseil into Swordfish as Rockfax tell you to - you end up in the sea!

Go and do Silver Shadow as the sun is sinking and catching the wall full-on. A truly superb experience. Careful with the black slippery rock at the beginning; it gets a lot better after a few feet. When I did it one of my friends dropped his shoe in the sea prior to seconding. He had to untie and go swimming to get it. Shortly afterwards a VAST seal swam into the bay, attracted by the splashing around. I'm glad Bruno had got out by then!
