This is a selective guidebook covering the rock climbing on the Gower peninsula in South Wales.

Also included are many excellent single pitch sport routes at places such as Rhossili, Southgate, Oxwich and Pwlldu, plus some beach-side bouldering. The guidebook covers a good range of grades with traditional routes from Diff to E8, and sport routes from F3+ to F8b.

Each area has an excellent location map, with all the routes shown on colour photo topos. Areas covered include Rhossili, Fall Bay, Mewslade, Ramsgrove, Paviland Valley, Port Eynon, Oxwich, Tor Bay, Three Cliffs Bay, Southgate, Pennard, Pwlldu, and Mumbles.
