Crag features

This small bay has a few worthwhile routes although the rock is of variable quality and most routes require low tides. 

A big, rather interesting-looking hole found just 50m south-east of Initiation Slabs. You get a good preview by walking either side of the square bay, and looking in.

A rockfall in 2014 has affected a number of routes here. 


Approach notes

Abseil from a slightly wobbly stake in the obvious boulder, awkward nuts in the boulder, or there is a more substantial boulder 10m off to the Northeast. Easy to swim in and there is DWS potential on the West face. 



The famous Pembroke Rockfax has returned with this glorious full-colour version packed with classic routes and all the wonderful features that you have come to expect from Rockfax. It is now twice the size of the old 1995 book and has some of the biggest and clearest photo-topos that have ever been published in a UK guidebook.
