The magnificent Lower Pen Trwyn begins somewhat unspectacularly out of a chossy gully, however instantly the rock is good and the climbing worthwhile. The first routes offer something to the those operating in the middle sport grades. Approach (see map on page 347) - The routes are on the far left of the cliff and are the first and last to be clear of water. This wall is the first to be revealed as the tide retreats and is accessible from mid-tide onwards.

At the top there is a dainty little traverse left to the lower-off.

Life's a Beach
A route that deserves more attention than it gets. There are two hard sections, one at the start and one above the overlap.
