Climbing trip to Gower.

The Gower Peninsula is ringed by limestone sea cliffs and sandy beaches. It’s sometimes seen as a baby version of Pembroke, but unlike Pembroke the approaches to the routes tend to involve a short walk across a beautiful sandy beach rather than a committing abseil onto a tidal ledge. This easy access combined with a lot of good low and mid grade climbing (there are even a few easy bolted routes around!) generally makes for a fun and relaxed trip, although gluttons for punishment can still find some classy harder testpieces and mini-adventures (from caving squeezes to swimming pitches) to push themselves on.

We’ll be camping at Nicholaston Farm, which is right next to the beach at Oxwich Bay, and within easy walking distance of the climbing at Three Cliffs Bay. Their pricing structure is a bit complicated, but it should work out to less than £15 a head for the weekend.
