Gower Climbing Festival 2012

Posted by Martin Kocsis on 08/09/2012

The BMC's Gower Climbing Festival is an opportunity to experience what the Gower peninsula has to offer on its limestone cliffs and beautiful beaches. It takes place over the weekend of 14-16 September and is based at the excellent Pitton Cross campsite near Rhossili.

There's plenty of climbing for everyone, with trad routes from Diffs to the high Extremes, sport routes from Fr6a+ to Fr8a, and a handful of bouldering areas too.

The BMC's team in South Wales have been hard at work behind the scenes preparing for what will be the fourth GowerFest.

Everyone is welcome, although please note that the organizers will not be providing instruction for beginners. If you are new to climbing and want to come along, we recommend that you employ a qualified instructor.

The locals will be on hand to give you the best advice about where to go, a new guidebook will be on sale that documents the best the area has to offer in sport and trad, and the sunshine has been booked well in advance (as usual). Check out the festival website.

The previous weekend is the BMC Cornish Climbing Festival.
