Whitley Bay Sand "James' Garden"

Northumberland, ENGLAND

Climbs 10 – Rocktype Sandstone (soft) – Altitude 14m a.s.l – Faces NE

Crag features
Mainly bouldering but option to top rope (this would be roping to railings/ lampposts - not advised). The stone is relatively soft but their are some great problems to be developed. Generally ignored with loads of opportunities to develop routes.

Most routes are short 3-5m. Some long traverses. Only about 10 routes developed/ known but always adding.

Their are 3 separate areas. The steps (south), paddling pool (middle ) and raised tarmac (north).

Access notes
The best place to park is by the unused High Point Hotel. Access is by the north (opposite bowling club) or south (opposite playground) set off steps to get down to the promenade. From here the whole area is easily seen.
