* Climbs listed in red are waiting to be checked by a crag moderator, and may not be accurate.
Take the A3022 twds Brixham past a white weatherboard house on the R. Take the first L turn (signposted Fishcombe Cove). 0.5mi further, after a one-way section, is a car park on the L.
Take the footpath past holiday chalets to a woody hillside, and follow it RW through the trees to the shingle beach - Fishcombe Cove. The crags (sea cliff and three quarries) lie on the far side of its grassy shoulder.
The sea cliffs are reached directly from the shoulder via a faint path.
The first quarry is reached by following the main path up to where it meets the fence at the edge of a golf course then following the fence for 100yds until a small path leads down to a scramble into the quarry.
While it is possible to follow a path / scramble between the quarries the fastest way to the far quarry (slipshod / supercalorific etc) is to continue along the path by the golf course for a fair way until a RH bending tree on the RH side (marked with a cross at time of writing) marks a good path down which leads to the far shoulder of the quarry.
