Forbidden Head

Climbs 46 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 5m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Routes up to 120ft, though the best ones are at E4 and above (Hungary Heart E5 6b, Gorak E5 6b). Good compact rock.

Access notes
Tidal: accessible at half to low tide by traversing along the cliff base. Routes on the R side can be reached by abseil to an almost non-tidal ramp. At the W (right looking to sea) edge, scramble down an easy ridge at the far W edge.

From the car park above the cliff walk to the low headland: takes a couple of minutes.
