The Knaps

Climbs 32 – Rocktype Schist – Altitude ? – Faces all

Crag features
A collection of grassy humps, mounds, micro-summits and stacks with steep walls, directly seaward of the small settlement of Downies. The Stack can be very pleasant at low tide on a sunny day, whilst the Gorilla's Head has more dramatic fare that might require a pre-placed anchor rope right over the summit.

Access notes
Parking is limited in Downies, so please be considerate when parking in the village so as not to block access for local residents and other traffic.

Birds can be a problem on top of The Stack and loitering during the nesting season.
