Poll Carn (Wolf Rock)

Climbs 3 – Rocktype Rhyolite – Altitude 156m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Poll Carn is home to three easy trad routes and a number of low to mid-grade bouldering problems. Although Poll Carn is more imposing than its neighbour, Maiden Castle, and at a distance appears to be more solid, the bouldering is not as good. The eastern side consists of broken slabs, and it is the south-western corner where the better problems (and potential for routes) exist. That said, some of these are superb, and most are steeply overhanging. Sitting starts are de rigeur. Around the south side, there are some slabs for your weak mates.

Access notes
The Roch rhyolite outcrops of Poll Carn and Maiden Castle are conspicuous features on the hillside just west of the A40 between Treffgarne and Wolfscastle about 6 miles north of Haverfordwest. When approaching from Haverfordwest take a sharp left up a steep, narrow road from Nant-y-Coy Mill, which is situated just after a bend 1 mile north of Treffgarne. Cars may be parked on the right at the end of the public section of the narrow road, a few hundred metres up the hill from the A40. Follow a footpath opposite the parking place (south) for 30m then take a smaller path leading up the hillside to the right. Poll Carn is reached after around 5 minutes.
