About Introduction to the Gower Peninsula:

The Gower is a friendly place to climb, with no fearsome cliffs like the Pembrokes. The average cliff height is a mere 60 feet. Tides do play a part on some cliffs, but there are usually easy escapes available for those stuck by the rising sea. The cliffs are mostly southwest facing, and are quite mild even in the winter, with many sunny afternoons even in January. Single ropes are usually adequate, but doubles are preferred because of the sharp limestone edges. As a peninsula, the area sees a lot less rain thann the areas inland, and they dry very quickly. Well worth the visit, you may end up loving it here!
