Mostly beach-level crag-ettes, though there are single- and multi-pitch routes up to 39m. For the most part you can wander along and simply try likely-looking lines, and check the guidebook later. The longest routes are on Block Buttress. Catacomb Gully has some good non-tidal routes.
Tidal: access times vary, but it is a fast tide.
From Rhossili car park (SS 415 881). About 30-40 minutes' walk.
Or from Mewslade Bay: from Pitton turn L (south) at an easily-missed crossroads to park about 100m further along, in the field on the L at Pitton Farm - put some money in the honesty box. Walk down a farm track, then bear R past farm buildings to the path leading through a narrow valley to the E end of Mewslade Bay: 10 minutes.

|Map tags in wrong places/order. Block Buttress is immediately west of Trident Gully, which is immediately west of Four Gullies, and Catacomb is immediately above Trident and the 4th (west-most) gully of Four Gullies.|
