Gallt-y-Mor cliffs between Porth Ysgo and Porth Cadlan
Gallt-y-Mor cliffs between Porth Ysgo and Porth Cadlan
These are the cliffs to be tackled by any Geographer dependent on two feet wishing to capture SH2025. In the 19thC mules carrying sacks of manganese ore used to make their way down these cliffs to ships grounded at Porth Cadlan, but erosion has changed the cliff profile since then. Don't bother to wait for the tide to go out, either. It doesn't. All that happens is that the water at the foot of the cliff is a wee bit shallower at low tide. Even then the traverse from Porth Ysgo to Porth Cadlan could only be accomplished by someone with the gift of walking on water.
