Jack Scout Crag

Lancashire, ENGLAND

Climbs 45 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces SW

Crag features
Lancashire's best effort at a sea cliff, though only washed by the sea at spring high tide. The crag gets sun after midday and for the rest of the day. Excellent routes around the VS grade throughout the quarry with most routes being HVS or less. [John Roberts]

Access notes
The crag is a SITE OF SPECIFIC SCIENTIFIC INTEREST (SSSI) owned by the National Trust, which permits climbing. However, it is stressed that the fragile plants must not be damaged and so the NT wishes climbers to take a sensitive approach. There are three rare species of tree present and so it is asked that:

¥ Climbers do not climb on areas stressed as sensitive (check guide).

¥ Climbers do not remove vegetation INCLUDING ivy.

Jack Scout can be a lovely get away for an afternoons routing, can be quite muddy after high tide but is generally cleaner than in past years. BMC Access agreement stipulates use of in situ staples for sport style lower-off on all routes (where equipped).

what happened to the seemingly wild ponies?

Some totally class climbing for such a little scruffy crag. The seaward base can be hideously muddy after a high tide, but a traverse above crap/water is possible. Path along top is less than good.
