A selected rock climbing guide to the Gower peninsula in South Wales. The selection of venues and climbs included in this guide will provide plenty of adventure for all climbers, among some of the best scenery in the UK.

The magnificent areas of Fall Bay and Three Cliffs have enough classic routes to keep you busy on many visits to the peninsula. The sport crags of Southgate compliment and add variety to the well-established hard routes of Oxwich and Pwlldu. In 1956 the Gower peninsula was designated as the UK's first Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty (AONB). Any visitor to the area will see why: it is packed full of stunning beaches and welcoming villages and provides a breath-taking backdrop to numerous outdoor activities including surfing and paragliding. There are miles of fantastic coastal paths to walk along (a perfect way to explore the many treats of the peninsula) and copious amounts of climbing.

Gower Rock aims to showcase the depth and quality of rock climbing on this wild, beautiful yet somewhat unknown peninsula. The area contains a wide variety of climbing on an enticing array of venues. On some routes you can step straight off golden sands onto classic lines; in other cases you can wend your way across peaceful cliff-top paths before dropping into some pretty demanding terrain just a stone's throw from ice-cream-scoffing tourists and pastoral picnic spots.

This second edition has been fully revised and updated and includes 14 new crags, 208 new routes (mostly sport) and 23 new photo diagrams.

Covers Rhossili, Fall Bay, Mewslade, Ramsgrove, Paviland Valley, Port Eynon, Oxwich, Tor Bay, Three Cliffs Bay, Southgate, Pennard, Pwlldu, Mumbles.
