Gower – Shipwreck Cove

The Gower was a regular holiday base for many years when we were kids, so I was long overdue a visit to sample the latest “in” climbing destination and especially the friendly sports climbing on offer.

Shipwreck cove together with the other sectors nearby has probably the highest concentration of new bolted routes on the peninsular. Plenty of variety with routes from 4s to 8b and quality throughout ( okay, I’m only guessing about the 8b! ) Good steep climbing on generally sound rock in a great situation.
