About Stennis Head(OS):

This is one of the best cliffs in Pembroke, every route a classic. Non-tidal, catches the sun, and destined to become the most polished crag in South Wales. There are two faces. The west is reached by scrambling down to a slanting terrace below the crag and going around to a dome type face. The east is reached by scrambling down some slabs and traversing left, difficult if a high sea is running. The west side has all of the classics, a V DIFF at the left end, and the routes getting progressively higher as the cliff rises up to 130 feet. The east side offers some HVS climbs with a few harder ones in some good positions. This crag can get quite crowded and busy at times.
