Crag features
There are three areas of climbing on Burry Holms, which is itself a tidal island accessible until about half-tide.

The crags dry very quickly except for Pincers Cove, which is almost always sea damp.

Access notes
As for Blue Pool Area to the beach, from where the island of Burry Holms is clearly visible, as is a tidal causeway leading out to it. The Southern Area of Burry Holms is reached by skirting round the island to the south (left). Pincers Cove is reached by following the path which leads up from the tidal causeway to the west side of the island. The Littlejohn Legacy Area is reached by starting up the same path, but contouring south (left) down the first gully.
