Crag features

Right next to the water, good if local. Two sctions a natural cave and a small limestone wall. Low problems but a few testing routes. Good, easy access and nice for evening climbing if local.

Approach notes

Go down some stairs across the roundabout from the lighthouse and keep going untill you hit the water. Parking is available on the hoe.

At long last the Council have removed the unsightly and dangerous fence. Now a long traverse can link together many of the best problems for some endurnce training.
