Gower Rock

Selected Rock Climbs


A selective rock climbing guide to the Gower peninsula in South Wales.

Gower Rock aims to showcase the depth and quality of rock climbing on this wild, beautiful yet somewhat unknown peninsula. The area contains a wide variety of climbing on an enticing array of venues. On some routes you can step straight off golden sands onto classic lines; in other cases you can wend your way across peaceful cliff-top paths before dropping into some pretty demanding terrain just a stone's throw from ice-cream-scoffing tourists and pastoral picnic spots.

The magnificent areas of Fall Bay and Three Cliffs have enough classic routes to keep you busy on many visits to the peninsula. The sport crags of Southgate compliment and add variety to the well-established hard routes of Oxwich and Pwlldu. The selection of venues and climbs included in this guide will provide plenty of adventure for all climbers, among some of the best scenery in the UK.

New in the 2nd Edition:
- Fully revised and updated
- 14 new crags
- 208 new (mostly sport) routes
- 23 new full colour photo topos
- 1 new area map, highlighting the approaches

Author Biography:

Stuart Llewellyn is Swansea born and bred, an engineer, adventurer and rock climber. Back in 2009 he kicked off the first Gower Climbing Festival, leading to the creation of this very guide.
Since the first edition, he's spent most of his time overseas, exploring and having adventures over seven continents. Volunteering in rural communities in Latin America, in Nicaragua supporting access to clean water and in Peru providing renewable electricity with Engineers without Borders.

Matt Woodfield is a mountaineering and climbing instructor who works locally; teaching, instructing and taking people on adventures.
When he is not running climbing or walking skills courses through his business Outdoor Matters, he is being a dad, going climbing or out on adventures or, most likely, combining the two.
He enjoys nothing more than getting out on rock with people and helping them develop their skills, confidence and experience.
