The Back Cliff has some superb long pitches with fingery flints and well-positioned cruxes. The recently developed ‘Workout Wall’ is a great place to pick up finger stamina for those up to the big grades. Also on offer is the Block Slab which has a number of nice, slabby pitches.
The Battleship cliffs are easy to reach from a good parking spot. Drive through Weston and after passing the shops, keep right down Wide Street. On the next bend (mini roundabout), turn right into Reap Lane and park down by a row of houses on the right. Walk down the road to a track behind the row of houses. Take the track that passes between a stable and a barn. At the cliff edge, walk slightly left and take a steep path (usually a fixed rope in place) down the hillside. Turn right at the bottom. The Veranda area is below you. For Battleship Slab and Backcliff, continue north along the path for a further 150m.
The peregrines that previously nested on Blacknor have moved nest site to Battleship Back Cliff. A restriction is now in place at the crag between “Always have the Edge” and “Zinc Oxide Mountain” including those routes. Blacknor is now un-restricted.
