Crag features

Single- and multi-pitch routes up to 220ft. Not a place for slow climbing, unless you've judged the tide very well. The best routes are at the E of the bay, such as Alien World (E3 5c), One-Eyed Man (E4 6a) and Beat Surrender (E5 6b).

Approach notes

Tidal. There are various descents, depending on the part of the bay, so abseils are not essential.

From Lydstep car park (open in summer) take the S exit. Where the path forks, head L.

From Forbidden Head car park, take the path W.
