Crag features

Possibly not going to be there long, so climb it while you can. It may be a good idea to take some pegs with you. And maybe a hammer. Don't bang too hard though.. The best route is Earth Rim Roamer II (E4 6a).

Approach notes

Accessible from either Hartland Pt or Hartland Quay by the coastal footpath; or drive to Berry Farm (SS 234 255) and walk along a path past an isolated house to the beach. The original Earth Rim Roamer is now a pile of boulders on the bottom of the crag.

Alas, Earth Rim Roamer 2 is no more, and no sign of a 3rd version, yet.
