At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Rhi climbing in the beautiful Gower Sunshine © Matthew Edwards
One of Gower's finest sport crags! super steep 25m routes straight of the golden sand of Rhosilli.
Home to the largest concentration of sport climbing on Gower, Shipwreck cove has something for everyone. The 4 sectors are all a short walk along the beach (on the left looking out to sea), And offer a range of climbing from short slabs to monstrous lactic battles in the sky.
The area is a sea cliff and as such should be treated with a degree of caution, their is some loose rock in places and a helmet would be advisable. that being said the majority of climbing is on great rock in an idillic setting.
There are still a few projects at the crag which are clearly marked as such on here and other tops, please respect.
Tidal crag - access 3hrs either side of Low water for Shipwreck cove and Black Wall genrally 2hrs either side of low for Castaway Cove and Mermaid wall.
Neap tides could shorten this time for Mermaid wall.
Parking in the large carpark above Rhossili beach. This is now owned by the National Trust, and Pay and Display, £5 for the day or members displaying badge Free!
