Happy after ending the runout on Ultravox, E2 5b, Chapel Point © drcorbasisgod
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.
Tidal at the cliff base.
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!
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a restriction has been in force here, but as the birds have not nested here for a number of years this restriction is no longer in force.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.
|Major rockfall has taken out 'Blow up' following February storm 2014.
