Crag features

h sea washed rock with many prows providing hard bouldering challanges above a pebble beach : accessible 3 hours either side of high tide and the south end probably for longer .at the moment 11 very short(8-10 metres ) bolted sport routes 5b to 7b+ and 1 open project partially bolted to the left of Black Arabesque : there are also good trad routes following the obvious crack lines in the various bays : worth a visit if you are in the area.Usually just called Sunbeach now as they seem to have dropped the Allen's bit.

Approach notes

drive down through the caravan park of (Allens) Sunbeach just south of Llwyngwril in Meirionnydd: park and walk south along the beach for 300 m: gates close 6 pm so it is better to park in a good layby further south on the main road 300 metres past the Sunbeach entrance : It is possible to then walk acrosss the gated level crossing down into the caravan park: Or park by the village train station and follow the beach south for 30 minutes.The caravan park is private  and special permission is required to take a vehicle through.It appears that there is an access line markednon the OS indicating the level crossing just south of  the entrance  to the park. As with all level crossing be careful.

We arrived at the crag at 1-1:30pm. The tide was in on the first part of the crag, but if you walk up and over the grass you can get to the middle part of the crag easily (little down climb in the middle) and climb there at this time :)

thanks for that mat and great to meet you two . we do have some more lines to bolt up and the best place to send any donations to is the north wales bolt fund. Chris Parkin is in charge of all that and he has been very helpful and supportive for bouldering I also recommend Creggennan lake above arthog for the views and the quality of the rock and no worries about tides . There is a topo on the site terry

Great little crag. Nice routes (that I tried) and bouldering looks amazing. Also helped by amazing setting and friendly locals! Do you have a bolt fund or anything set up Terry? Happy to drop some money in there to help out. I definitely owe you guys one anyway after the rescue! hope to be back down next year
