Turn off the A5025, following signposts to Llanfairnghornwy. Drive through the village and continue for 1.5km until a triangulated T-junction is reached. Turn left and follow the road for 500m until it is possible to park in the obvious carpark on the right. Walk Westwards towards the plantation keeping this just on your right.

Area information

Gogarth's seacliffs contain some of the most important breeding seabird colonies in Europe. It is important climbers continue contributing towards their protection by observing the negotiated nesting restrictions which apply to a number of cliffs. Most of the area is managed by the RSPB as an internationally important bird reserve and the arrangements here are often cited as best exemplars of how climbing and conservation can co-exist. PLEASE REFER TO THE INDIVIDUAL CRAG ENTRIES ON THIS DATABASE FOR FULL DETAILS. The range of cliffs include Gogarth Bay, South Stack, The Range as well as other outlying crags along the Anglesey coast.
