COVID-19

As the Covid-19 lockdown eases, access for climbing is opening back up, subject to some measures and restrictions depending on where you are going. Please make sure you have read and understood our current advice before heading out and apply it alongside RAD advice to ensure access issues don’t develop.

The rock bridge between 'Dreamboat Annie' and 'The Arete' has been removed by the National Trust.  This area has now stabilised although there is some loose rock just right of 'Inset'. Access to Grey slab is via a higher path behind the area where the rock was removed.  

Parking and Approach

Park in National Trust car park or boat owners parking area for a small fee.

Group Advice

This is a good group use crag.  Please try to minimise firther erosion by gearing up on rock/gravel rather than on the grass.

Area information

Less frequented than the south, there are some very popular cliffs along the southern bays of St David's, but also some very remote and atmospheric cliffs further north. Wildlife is abundant and the abscence of a formal restriction does not mean that protected birds are not present - so climbers are asked to be observant and avoid routes if the prescence of climbers is obviously causing disturbance to the birds. Many of the bays are also important seal breeding areas - if breeding seals are present then again please avoid.
