Crag features

Right next to the water, good if local. Two sections; a natural cave and a small limestone wall. Low problems but a few testing routes. Good, easy access and nice for evening climbing if local. A few of the routes are tending towards, or are actually, eliminates, but great fun if you take a mate.

Approach notes

Go down some stairs across the roundabout from the lighthouse and keep going untill you hit the water. Parking is available on the Hoe.

Noticed beat the hoe has become significantly easier than before. Think a couple of holes have been enlarged. Please keep modifications accidental only. Wiwwim sept 2016

At long last the Council have removed the unsightly and dangerous fence. Now a long traverse can link together many of the best problems for some endurnce training.
