About St. Govan's Head(OS):

This is a fantastic cliff, great for the Extreme leader. There is very little here below VS, but above there are over 100 routes evenly spread up to E4, with a few even harder ones. There are generally big holds and good protection, but the steepness makes them feel small, and the protection feel distant. There are stakes on top of most of the climbs, and a good rappell point by a square, detached boulder, or a DIFF chimney. The west end is non-tidal, most of the routes are good in all but high seas, but a low tide is necessary to traverse to the east end.
Nearest town or city: St. Govan's
Directions: OS158--GR973/927 From the St. Govan's car park, walk east along the cliffs for ten minutes toward the headland, and the rappell station will be obvious. Rappell in and find your climb.
