Crag features

Chapel Point is the closest venue to the St Govan's car park, although it sees much less traffic than its neighbours. This is probably due to a combination of seasonal bird restrictions, tidal considerations and a slight lack of well-starred routes. That said, it's well worth a gander, as the two obvious ticks of Ultravixens (E1) and Ultravox (E2) are brilliant, and the rest of the wall harbours some pretty impressive territory, if not quite up to the same high standard. Alongside the crag you'll find the atmospheric Chapel Cove itself, which might well qualify as Pembroke's most popular tourist trap; random people falling about on slimy green boulders, that sort of thing. It's quite a spot for a bunch of peregrines to hang out.

Approach notes

Tidal at the cliff base.

Access Advice

Night firing normally occurs on Tuesday & Thursday but may also alternate to Monday & Wednesday.

This crag has had a couple of major rock falls in recent years.  Expect to find some routes missing or harder than you thought they would be!

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 1 August

Reason: Nesting Birds

In previous years a restriction has been in force here, but as the birds have not nested here for a number of years this restriction is no longer in force. If the restriction is re-instated then cliff top markers will be placed on the site by PCNPA.

Rockfax Digital

Available on Rockfax Digital

Rockfax Digital brings together all the Rockfax climbing information with UKC logbooks and presents it into a user-friendly package for use on Android and iOS devices.



This new app version of the Pembroke Rockfax has been significantly updated with 350 extra routes, new geo-located maps and updates to the existing information. The print guide from 2009 had 650 routes and this new app package has nearly 1000! The update includes many easier routes plus extra lines at the main crags covered in the book. It also has extensive deep water soloing coverage with the majority of the crags from Mike Robertson's 2007 Deep Water book added to the mix.


This book from 2009 covers all the classic routes on the most popular crags of Pembroke. It covers the beautiful slab climbing around St. David's and all the best crags of Range East and the Lydstep areas, as far as Mother Carey's Kitchen. The range and variety of routes is enough to keep any climber happy; from those leading moderate grades keen to have a look for the first time, all the way to those who have developed lifelong obsessions for the place!
Major rockfall has taken out 'Blow up' following February storm 2014.
