Review

This guide describes over 1100 routes over a 15 mile stretch of the Pembrokeshire coastline - idyllic coves separated by picturesque beaches characterise much of the climbing in this area.

The area boasts three major, world class, climbing areas: Mowingword, Stackpole Head and Mother Carey's Kitchen. But it’s not all super-steep hardcore climbing; the guide also describes the area around Penally which offers loads of exquisite slabs and easier-angled rock for those operating in the lower grades.

With 440 pages of text, full colour photodiagrams, action shots and line plans you won’t have any excuse for getting lost or not being enthused.
