Crag features

It can be dusty little boys and girls, so don't forget to bring your brushes in case the crag cleaning fairy hasn't been for a while.

Approach notes

From Bishopston, turn right towards Brandy Cove, then immediately right again to gain the hillside at the east side of the beach. Walk accross the beach. The approach from Pennard is much slower.

South Wales Sport Climbs covers the area to the south of the Brecon Beacons, spanning the land and sea cliffs from the River Wye on the Welsh border to Pembrokeshire in the west. The area is home to a wealth of sport climbing on a multitude of venues ranging from small inland quarries to extensive limestone sea cliffs.

Most of the crag was covered in mud that had been washed over the top of the cliff. There seems to have been little traffic recently.
