The site owners (Isle of Anglesey County Council) have concerns about climbing in the quarry due to public safety concerns and climbers have occasionally been asked to move on. However the climbing is on open access land and the sports routes on the Physical Face were recently rebolted following discusisons with the Council.  

Group Advice

Not suitable- Some areas on the southern end has access to a group abseil.

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.
