South Wales Sport covers the wealth of climbing in the region south of the Brecon Beacons, from Newport in the east all the way to Carmarthenshire in the west. This area is home to an abundance of sport climbing at 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 Carmarthenshire's sea cliffs. The variation in climbing on offer is remarkable for such a compact area and access is easy.
Many of the crags are fairly recently developed, reflecting the increasing popularity of sport climbing. The book is illustrated with a large number of superb action photos and the latest full colour topos as well as up-to-date information on where to stay, eat, drink and relax.
