Allen's Sunbeach


smooth sea washed rock with many prows providing hard bouldering challanges above a pebble beach : accessible 3 hours either side of high tide and the south end probably for longer .at the moment 11 very short(8-10 metres ) bolted sport routes V+ to 7b and 1 open project partially bolted to the left of Entropy: there are also good trad routes following the obvious crack lines in the various bays : worth a visit if you are in the area.Usually just called Sunbeach now as they seem to have dropped the Allen's bit.

drive down through the caravan park of (Allens) Sunbeach just south of Llwyngwril in Meirionnydd: park and walk south along the beach for 300 m: gates close 6 pm so it is better to park in a good layby further south on the main road 300 metres past the Sunbeach entrance : It is possible to then walk acrosss the gated level crossing down into the caravan park: also possible is to park outside the gates at the entrance to the park.
