Tenby South Beach Quarry

Climbs 13 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 10m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
Surprisingly difficult slab climbing on quarried limestone. Routes up to 120ft. Recommended: Priaprism (E2 5c*), Hair Trigger Trouble (E3 6a**), Death to Peg Thieves (E4 6b**) and the marvellously-named Noddy the Nubbin and the Sensuous Smear (E5 6c**). Some wonderful routes on very good quality rock.

Access notes
The district council owns the land and discourages climbing, this used to be due to cars parked below. The base is now where the towns street cleaners empty their rubbish. Try going at quiet times (Christmas and any time not during the summer or weekends)

Bolts have replaced pegs in many routes.

The quarry lies directly above the car park for the south beach at Tenby, near the golf course.

While working a route once I abbed off as there were some drunks messing with my anchors. Be prepared for bored teenagers and drunks.
