Ram Grove Crag, Three Sisters, Deborahs Overhang

Climbs 43 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 30m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
A collection of crags lying high above the sea midway between Thurba Head and Paviland. Not popular enough to have got all the loose rock off - take care. Routes up to 45m.

Access notes
Approach from Pitton to Thurba Head: from there, take the cliff E for 15min past a wall and stile to an obvious valley leading to the sea - Ram Grove. (40 mins) The Three Sisters are E. Deborahs Overhang is 185m E of the third.

Alternatively, from Pilton Green car park (see Paviland) take footpaths over fields: after reaching the stile at the head of the valley, take the first stile in the wall on the R. At the clifftop, follow the path past a stone wall down one, then two valleys. At the second valley mouth is a shattered pinnacle on the R (W): Deborahs Overhang is below this.

Went to Third Sister and was pleasantly surprised. Good routes for those climbing in the 6s on good rock with very generous bolting. Well worth a visit.
