Sunset after an evenings climbing at Silverdale © stevethex
Lancashire's best effort at a sea cliff, though only washed by the sea at spring high tide. The crag gets sun after midday and for the rest of the day. Excellent routes around the VS grade throughout the quarry with most routes being HVS or less. [John Roberts]
Access to the cliff is not starightforward.The path described in the new lancashire guide appears to have been blocked. We eventually walked down through the caravan park but there is apparently no public access here. The only other way seems to be from the coast path, cutting back rightwards (when the tide is low enough).
|Jack Scout can be a lovely get away for an afternoons routing, can be quite muddy after high tide but is generally cleaner than in past years.
BMC Access agreement stipulates use of in situ staples for sport style lower-off on all routes (where equipped). |

|Some totally class climbing for such a little scruffy crag. The seaward base can be hideously muddy after a high tide, but a traverse above crap/water is possible. Path along top is less than good.|
