Crag features

Best described as 'adventure sport climbing', with many routes requiring the leader to top out and be seconded to retrieve quickdraws. Well bolted.

Approach notes

No problems - ample parking and a tarred path approach. Some of the walls are tidal - check the guidebook for details.

Lovely place to climb and very well bolted including anchors at the top. Rock is sound and holds are good but well hidden (think BennyBeg but not as bad).

The SMC guidebook lists a number of numbered posts on the cliff path, these are no longer in the same place, adding to much confusion finding the routes.
