St. Non's Bay mostly consists of short pitches on sandstone slabs and walls in an idyllic setting. The best areas are Velvet Wall towards the west and Initiation Slabs towards the east, both of which give pleasant routes up to HVS.

Good venue, micro wires recommend for the starts, steeper finishes make an exciting change the usual style of the area.

The 4 routes around the big block all short but worthwhile. Not especially tidal from my experience 2-3 hours around looking tide maybe more
freemanTom - 13/Aug/17
It looks like the bottom part of the Cormorant Front buttress has fallen down based on the photograph of the crag in the Rockfax guide. I've uploaded a couple of photographs of the buttress. Can someone who knows the crag well confirm this?

It seems all of 'Rosary' (HS,4b) & the top of 'Foot and Mouth' (VS,4c) have suffered from storm damage - Square Bay, St Davids, Pembroke

Shiraz and Chinon are listed twice, also on the Porth-y-ffynnon page...
