The crags at Rhossili village itself overlook Worms Head and contain a mixture of easy and hard routes, both sport and trad. This area has seen considerable development in the last few years with the equipping of many new sports crags. The area has become, as a consequence, very popular indeed. The crag of note on the Rhossili Upper Crags is Trial Wall and, on the Sea Level Crags, Shipwreck Cove has become very popular venue for sports climbers.

The area Fall Bay to Mewslade has trad climbing in a beautiful setting. Most of the climbs start at beach level though there are some crags which start just below the coasr path. It's an area for everyone. From the hard test-pieces on Yellow Wall to the more family orientated climbs off the beach at Mewslade.



Climbing on the Worms Head itself is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN. To ignore this ban could jeopardise access to many other cliffs on Gower and it should be strictly adhered to.

See Rhossili Upper Crags and Rhossili Sea Level Crags for detailed access notes.
