The left-hand side of Stennis Head offers one of the more friendly and accessible crags in Pembroke. It is non-tidal, you can easily walk to the base and comfortably gear-up under your chosen route. The presence of a few superb routes makes it one of the more popular sections of crag around. Guidebook page 142.
