Dan Carroll on TR1 at Pennard, Gower. © Dan Hancock

Crag features

Steep buttresses a short distance apart, with some interesting tespieces. Sometimes loose. Notable for Skive (HVS 5a***) and its Direct (E1 5b***), and Knucklefluster (E2 5c*) and Dan Dare (E2 5c**).

Approach notes

All on NT land: take your litter (and any you find) home.

B4593 to Southgate (NT carpark). Walk on the narrow road E for 10min to a valley down to the sea from Hunts Farm. Either: path down to the coastal footpath and along to the base of the cliffs (10 min); Or: follow the clifftop path past two huts on the L. Prominent rocky headland - pass this and descend twds the sea. High Pennard buttress is on your L and Pennard Buttress on the R.
