Altitude 1m a.s.l
Ynysdeullyn consists of two offshore pinnacles, accessible at low tide. Take care with rock on the landward side of the pinnacles - very friable. Single- and multi-pitch routes up to 200ft, more notable for the sense of adventure than amazing climbing.
Craig Ddu is tidal (accessible low-mid tide); good for Beckoning Light (E2 5c*).
Take the minor road NW from the A487 through the village of Mathry. Limited parking near the harbour, esp in summer.
Ynys Deullyn is half a mile north-west from Abercastle. The rock at Ynys Deullyn is extremely poor and there are no belays in place at the top of routes on the mainland. A thoroughly un-recommended crag!
Dates: 1 March to 1 August
Reason: Nesting Birds
The crags at Ynys Deullyn have nesting restrictions 1st March - 1st Aug. The shingle beaches and coves around Ynys Deullyn are also used by seals for pupping August to December - please check before climbing and do not climb if there is a pup on the beach in sight of the climb. Craig Du, nearer to Abercastle is not affected by restrictions, nor is the DWS cave at the entrance to the Harbour.
