TELPYN POINT


Set between Pembroke and Gower is this surprising sport climbing sea cliff venue. Telpyn, like its nearby neighbours Morfa Bychan and Pendine, offers plenty of sport climbs on well-equipped rock in a beautiful setting. The rock is a hard sandstone and provides both technical and strenuous lines. The routes close to the descent scramble are excellent and provide a good range of mid-to-hard grade routes that will appeal to many. Lurking around the corner is a wall with a totally different feel - radically steep, covered with stacked overhangs and only really appealing to those who like their sport climbing with a heavy dose of adventure.
