Fort Le Marchant

Climbs 17 – Rocktype Diorites – Altitude ? – Faces W

Crag features
Short climbs on clean grey diorite. The HVS' in the gully below the fort are testpieces, but are dry on most HW. The stack off the back of the fort with most of the climbs on is reached by crossing a very tidal gully. Some bouldering around, especially traversing on the walls of the fort.

Access notes
Full-bore shooting takes place on Saturdays on the headland in summer which prevents access to both this crag and Martello Wall.

No bird restrictions.
