Crag features

As a place to top rope and practice your slab technique this venue can provide a good evening's entertainment. It is hard to recommend the climbing to leaders (or soloists). It needs thorough cleaning to remove exfoliating flakes and the protection possibilities are still very limited. Grades should be taken with a very large pinch of salt with the routes in their current condition.

Approach notes

From the car park next Radford Quarry follow the footpath across the dam towards the sewage works. Skirt rightwards where the path steepens then continue up the hill (no L fork) to stile on the R at the top of the hill. Walk across the heath to the Quarry


Driving from Plymstock, descend the hill into Hooe and turn right into Meadow Park, turn right again and then first left into Westfield Avenue and park near the bend. A footpath leads through garages to a metal gate. The crag top, often guarded by inquisitive Soay Sheep can be seen from here.


Access Advice

Council owned and the approach is across a privately owned field so keep a low profile and be courteous if asked to leave.
