Gogarth Upper Tier

Gogarth Area

An adventurous place - lots of three star routes packed with adventure. The scary top-outs on many routes can be as commititng as the harder climbing further down!

Crag information
Climbing Area: Wales Rock Type: Quartzite
Importance: International CRoW Land: Yes
Ownership: RSPB No. of Routes:
Within National Park: No Year Developed: 1964
Grid Reference:

Non-tidal but the access scramble is pretty serious and not for the faint hearted.  Ensure the belayer is actually anchored at the base - despite the appearacne of a flat base, there have been very serious incidents here when the leader has fallen and pulled the second down the steep slope to the sea below. 
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.
