Crag features

This area is near to the village of Trefasser with routes that are difficult to find and access. It is one of Pembroke's more serious climbing areas and many routes have had very few ascents and may be overgrown, particularly on Shipwreck Wall. 

Approach notes

Approach from Pwll Deri car park in 15-25 mins.

Access Advice

Access to most routes requires low tide and is very tricky - a kayak on a calm day might be the best option!. The shipwreck mentioned in the guide has broken up. Routes have had very few ascents and may be overgrown, particularly on Shipwreck Wall.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 1 August

Reason: Nesting Birds

Penbwchdy Head to Pwll Deri - Check signs as restrictions may be lifted early. The cliffs south of the headland are unaffected.

Made a visit in the mid 90's. Stunning place but couldn't spot the routes amongst the grassy wall and the intervening zawn was full of water at low tide. Half an hour of stamping in the bracken revealed the rusted remains of an abseil stake and that was that. Sadly, never returned.

Routes here are seriously overgrown. Climbed Sargasso Wall and it turned into an epic having to clean the route as we climbed. Shame it's overgrown, it would be a very good route.

Took a look at this crag this weekend. Very long hack through bracken and brambles. Decided the routes looked far too overgrown and dangerous (even HS) so we ran away. I wouldnt bother going to look unless you wanted a spectacular adventure. Ab stakes looked just about useable. No sign of ship wreck or way across the zawn but perhaps you cant see it from the top.

Went to climb Sargasso Wall (10/07) Route looked too green to climb and very little evidence of the shipwreck mentioned in the guidebook. Is access still possible without this? Has any one climbed here recently?
