Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.
Altitude 33m a.s.l
The cliffs around St. David's Head itself include some superb routes from D to E5. The most popular crags are Craig Coetan and the South Buttress of St. David's Head, both of which give enjoyable climbing on solid rock in the lower grades. Mur Cenhinen has a large supply of extreme routes with fantastic but condition-dependent climbing on impressively steep rock.
The crags are approached from Whitesands car park via the headland or the Iron Age burial chamber of Coetan Arthur.Approach times very between 15-30 mins.
Excellent Gabbro crags that should be easier to find with the new 2013 guidebook! Best on afternoons and summer evenings.
