Climbs 47 – Rocktype Chalk – Altitude ? – Faces SE

Crag features
Mostly steep serious multi-pitch trad chalk routes. Climbing is with axes/crampons, and protection is primary with warthogs that need a lump hammer to place them. Placing them takes time, effort, and two hands, so clipping to your axes and weighting them is generally considered ethically ok. The area is covered in the 2008 CC Sandstone guide however many of the routes have changed form or sometimes fallen down so this is a crag for the adventurous. The area is largely tidal.

Note that bird bans commence on 1st Feb for place on some sections of the cliffs (see BMC link below).

It is essential that you contact the coastguard before and after climbing. Their number is 01304 210008.
