The Arc, Limeslade Crag, Chris Allen © ChrisAllen

Crag features

AKA crab island crag and/or Rams Tor Bays. Use this for any routes/bouldering between rotherslade and ram's tor. Use the Wiki to look at the extensive bouldering in the area. There are several purple belay stakes at the top of the routes starting with the step off the boulder and there are a couple of belay pegs above the south facing routes too.

Approach notes

Park at Rotherslade and follow the cliff path east towards limeslade for 500 metres. Go through a gap in the fence and walk down an eroded earthy slope. Either head directly towards the sea and scramble down to the base of the crag or alternatively, walk around the grassy top of the crag to the west (passing two metal stakes) and walk down the slope.
