MORFA BYCHAN


Morfa Bychan is tucked away in a tranquil cove and adjacent to a nice beach. It has some superb rock and climbing and makes a worthwhile venue within easy reach of the Pembrokeshire crags, or when combined with a visit to the nearby Telpyn Point or Pendine. The cliff is limestone and very steep in its central section. This initially appears quite intimidating but on closer inspection it all feels quite friendly. Morfa Bychan has a good grade mix - in the centre are harder routes whilst on its right-hand side the cliff is less steep.
