Les Tielles

Guernsey, CHANNEL ISLANDS

Climbs 15 – Rocktype Gneiss – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
The highest crag in the island, unfortunately the rock quality's not the best and West Slab is well vegetated now. Anyone bothering to clean the crag will no doubt be able to put up some long new routes.

BOULDERING - Below the car park is a boulder field. A few interesting problems can be found here, however the best problems are located on a cave on the western side of the boulder field. The cave has a very good looking harder problem (possibly 8B or harder) however these problems are often wet.

Access notes
No bird restrictions, but no doubt seagulls and shags nest on or around the climbs. Avoid the shags' nests.

All routes are non-tidal in calm conditions, however West slab and Lower buttress will need abseil approaches when the tide's in.

The boulder field is best accessed by following a path down and right (looking out to sea) of the battery, then abseiling down a long grass slope.
