South Wales Sport Climbs covers the area to the south of the Brecon Beacons, spanning the land and sea cliffs from the River Wye on the Welsh border to Pembrokeshire in the west. The area is home to a wealth of sport climbing on a multitude of venues ranging from small inland quarries to extensive limestone sea cliffs.

The climbing is easily split into four main areas - Valleys Sandstone, Gower, the inland and coastal limestone crags and Camarthenshire’s sea cliffs.
Gower's stunning beaches and cliffs  are a big draw for holidaying visitors and locals alike, whilst nearby Camarthenshire's remote sea-cliffs will reward those prepared to try somewhere off of the beaten track with some superb climbing.
The inland limestone and coastal cliffs close to Cardiff and Swansea have been long established and well used by locals but have not been recognised by many from further afield despite quick access and lots of routes throughout the grades.
The sandstone quarries that line the sides of the valleys stretching up towards the Brecon Beacons bring another dimension to the area. Lurking in the confines of these little known venues are some truly memorable pitches that will test technique and finger strength to the maximum.
