Lies off the Devon coast (and is officially part of Devon, but we think of it more as a place in its own right).
Info on rocktype, and crags, welcome.
See here for latest restrictions
For details on accommodation, sailing times of the ferry and camping, contact The Landmark Trust, Shottesbrooke, Maidenhead, Berks SL6 3SW or call 01628 825 925
Accomodation details can be obtained from the Landmark Trust (Tel: 01628 825925). Please check in with the Lundy Warden on arrival and declare yourself as a climber - this way the warden can advise you of any access issues such as recent rockfall/unstable ground or extended/lifted nesting restrictions. Letting the Landmark Trust know you are a climber when you book your ferry and accomodation doesn't get this information through to the warden so drop in and say hello when you arrive.
Three large abseil stakes were recently placed on the grass slope above the descent to The Devil’s Chimney Cliff in Jenny’s Cove these have been subsequently removed by climbers on the request of Lundy Warden, Beccy McDonald. Lundy is an SSSI and the slopes above Jenny’s Cove have recently seen a rise in the number of breeding Puffins and Manx Shearwaters. The approaches to all the cliffs on the island can be safeguarded with enough rope and common sense. If we are to continue enjoying the very good relationship we have with Lundy and the Landmark Trust then climbers are requested not place any further stakes or leave unnecessary abseil slings in place.
Dates: 31 March to 31 July
Reason: Nesting Birds
Approximately 70 of the 100+ cliffs in the CC Guidebook have seasonal climbing restrictions, the details of which are available on the island. Some of these restrictions vary from year to year so climbers should check with the warden on 01237 431831 if in doubt about the annual arrangements.
Also please note that there have been a number of rockfalls on the west coast as a result of the stormy weather over winter 2014 which has affected a number of crags - please see the Climber's Club website for Paul Harrison’s Climbing supplement which includes details. Further information on climbing and restrictions can be found on the Landmark Trust website.

|Toreador, thank you for cleaning this up. Last time I looked the page was a total mess, must have been a lot of work to get everything sorted!|

|I agree, and then it could be broken into crag areas (as above). Its too unwieldy at the moment.|

|Shouldn't this section be intergrated into the large "Lundy" section on UKC, rather than on its own?|
