Gower

Last week I visited to Gower for the first time. I was very impressed with the quality of the climbing, especially Shipwreck Cove in Rhossili.

We briefly visited Fox Hole which was slightly underwhelming but Pioneers of the Hypnotic Groove 7b was very good.

The main event was visiting Shipwreck Cove which has recently been developed with crowdfunding. I was impressed, a lot of effort has been put into developing the area. Coupled with its scenic location it's now a top UK sport climbing 'destination'.

The highlight for me was climbing Vennerne 7c+ (but worth 8a), I was very impressed with the quality of the climbing, it's certainty up there with the best in the UK.

On the same wall One Ton Depot 7b+ was also very good. Sadly I did not have time to get on Air Show the other classic and first route on the main wall..next time!
