About Triple Overhang Area(OS):

This is the area between Space Buttress and Crickmail Point. The area as a whole is very good with plenty of climbing, VS and up, up to 150 feet long. Some of the sections are tidal, others not. The most spectacular in Triple Overhang Buttress, about 200 yards east of Crickmail Point, with a series of overhangs, the top one being the largest to say the least.
Nearest town or city: St. Govan's
Directions: OS158--GR949/937 From the St. Govan's car park, walk into the range, follow the track past the wire enclosure of Saddle Head, past a blunt headland, then by The Castle (big rock with a cave through it) and another half mile will bring you to Crickmail Point, the last buttress before the headland curves around. The wall beneath you going east is the Triple Overhang Area.
