Description [Suggest Change]

AKA "Mother Scary's", it lives up to the reputation!

The first thing you need to know is that the routes are good, really good. The next should be self-evident: it's steep. Well, the Space Face and the West Face are. In fact, they're really steep. Third, it's committing. All routes are accessed by abseil, and are very tidal. You can expect to be stay dry at the bottom for about 2 1/2 hours either side of low tide.

There's too many classics to list in the description, but Rock Idol (E1) is a must, as is Brazen Buttress at E2. The latter is only vertical, but be prepared for a good pump! Deep Space (E2) is an unusual route, and Zeppelin (E3) is outrageously steep. Anything on the Space Face is worth doing (and steep).

Getting There [Suggest Change]

From Pembroke, take the A4319 East towards Tenby. Passing through the village of Lydstep, take a right just before the pub (approaching from Tenby, turn left just after the pub). Follow the poorly-maintained road round a sharp left turn, then take a right up a steep road to a car park at its end.

From the car park, walk South to the Coast then turn left (East) and follow the coast path for about 400m. You should see the White Tower to the East: a distinctive saddle-shaped promontory with a sheer cliff at its seaward end.
