A very friendly E to NE facing wall which, although short, has some of the best quality rock in Torbay (none of the routes required any cleaning). Virtually non-tidal (although 2 hours either side of high tide is recommended for the Deep Water Solos), but best avoided if a heavy swell is running, the main features are an overhung bay below a prow, a large central groove and a cave at the right hand end. The routes are described from right to left. Note: it is advisable to pre-place a rope to tree belays set well back.
If approaching from Babbacombe drive past the DIY centre car park then take the next turning on the L (passing big hotel on corner). Follow this road a short distance to a Pay and Display Car Park on the R. Park here then follow the Hope's Nose (the headland to the S of Anstey's Cove) path. 260 yards past prominent concrete shelter a track branches off Lwards (not to be mistaken with another track with wooden steps just before). Follow the path down to the cliff top and continue S until an obvious steep descent path is reached, complete with in-situ string. Alternatively follow the first 2300ft of Morning Town Ride!"
|Early September, 2015: the final bit of path from the headland itself to the down climb was very overgrown. Long trousers (or even better, a pair of garden shears) advisable.|
