Vale Castle

Guernsey, CHANNEL ISLANDS

Climbs ? – Rocktype Granodiorite – Altitude 15m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
The walls of the castle are a useful non-tidal traversing location, and there are some fun vertical problems too. Toproping is possible at some points, but belays are scarce or well back - bottom-roping is probably easier in many instances. There is also a small quarried outcrop below the main slope up to the castle. Landings are normally flat but fairly hard.

Somewhat urban, so watch out for broken glass and the odd dog's egg.

Fantastic views over the north of the island and Big Russell channel.

Access notes
Park at the carpark to the SE below the castle and walk up, 2 minutes. No other access restrictions. Toilets and food available all year round until ~5pm at Bordeaux kiosk a 5 minute walk to the north.
