Gogarth

Rhoscolyn

A far more friendly venue than Gogarth’s main areas around North and South Stack, and recommended as a great way to introduce yourself to challenges, environment and character of sea cliff climbing, most of the crags are south to south west facing, although a few parts of Sea Cave Zawn’s do have a north west aspect.

The Climbing

The routes around Llawder Zawn are easy to access by walking and scrambling to the base. The classic of the crag is Icarus which at HVS is a great route, but save some guns for the final steep section. There are other great routes here most notably Wild Rover E1, Mask of the Red Death E3 and The amazing Sun.

Eslewhere there are other amazing routes across the grades, for novices the short and sweet Symphony Crack at VD is one of the best easy sea cliff routes around. There is also one the most stunning Deep Water Solo's in the Sea Cave Zawn, Electric Blue which storms its way across the lip of the cave and then up the easier but alarming wall. The crags here are:
