The incomparable beauty of The Gower Peninsula received international acclaim when an image of Three Cliffs Bay was voted the best coastal view in Europe. If, one clear night, you’re fortunate to be at the campsite where the award-winning shot was taken, come sunset you’ll endorse that vote.
Rock Climbing on the Gower
The pinnacle of the Gower, with a great pub (incredible view!) and sea-stack cliff just off the end of it, is Worms Head. Nearby, the splendour of Rhossili Bay’s fine, sweeping sands is also indisputable. All Gower climbing is sea cliff – and somehow unique… as you belay stood on smooth sand and top-out onto grassy hillsides.
There are many fine trad routes from VDiffs to the upper Extremes. If trad isn’t your thing then there are even cliffs dedicated to sport climbing! The crags are mostly in relaxed and scenic positions which are positively covered in three star routes – fabulous memories are to be gathered here.
The Gower also offers a fine spectrum of climbing for experienced and novice boulderers alike. Kennelgarth Wall at Dinas offers some great safe problems rewarding strength and subtle technique. The Trench at Ogmore is unique – grit shapes without friction. The Gower is a ‘mine’ of easier problems – and some hard ones – with the additional attractions of swimming and jumping at high tide.
