Rockfax Description
Brean Down's classic trad line is a serious undertaking. The climbing is both sustained and on variable quality rock. The pitch can be split at the big ledge at 9m. Start below the corner. Gain the large horizontal break and ledge at 8m via the narrow corner and wall. Ascend the sustained continuation corner to an exit up the final vegetated crack. Stake belays and additional belays in the rock outcrops further up the slope. © Rockfax

Just brilliant! I was glad to have rope above my head though especially for the top out (although the footholds are good there's only veg for hands)

Took ages and a bit scary on the top bit with an exit clawing out on the vegetation at the top. Brilliant

horrifically epic. Must go back and lead if I call myself a true trad climber.

Sandy & serious but what a line.

Ali MacDonald 14/Mar/87 Lead O/S

Climbed with a lad from the RAF Regiment, can't remember his name. I am sure this was only given HVS 5a in the guide book back then.
