Brean Down (Fort Crags) Somerset, ENGLAND
Climbs 63 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 8m a.s.l – Faces S
Totally different from the landward crags at Brean. Hard, textured rock reminiscent of The Gower.
Excellent trad climbing in an atmospheric situation.
Walk out along the path on top of the down until the fort at the end of the headland comes into view.
Turn left at a concrete gun emplacement near the path and scramble down to the west of the first cliff (Red Slab Wall).

Brean fort crags regeneration Team are hard at work - Some great sea cliff trad routes are being cleaned up and repeated that are well worth climbing. Of particular note is Hotaches Buttress.|

What a gorgeous place, and what lovely grippy rock! The way down was a bit of a puzzle; when you turn left off the path towards the fort you go down a bit and there is a little building (gun emplacement), and the scramble down is in front of that.

I couldn't find it. I couldn't work out where to go to Ab down and therefore didn't climb at the Fort Crag, ended up on the beach. A solid description from someone who knows would be useful, I found the description in the CC guide to be utterly useless.
