Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Crag features

The Breakwater beach problems can be climbed at any tide but the problems between Shoalstone and Breakwater are tidal and can be climbed at around 2/3 hours either side of low tide.

Good rock with lots of potential for hard (and easy) problems. There are several roofs between Breakwater and Shoalstone that have not yet been tried.

V0-V11 already established with loads of development to be done.

Approach notes

The Breakwater beach problems can be climbed at any tide but the problems between Shoalstone and Breakwater are tidal and can be climbed at around 2/3 hours either side of low tide.

Park in the Breakwater carpark or Shoalstone carpark. They are signposted as you come into Brixham.

From the Shoalstone carpark- Facing the sea walk along the path rightwards until you come to some steps going down towards a small beach (Shoalstone Beach), go down the steps and all the Shoalstone boulder problems are there.

In the main Breakwater carpark all the problems are obvious at the back of the beach. Scramble of the rock on the far side of the beach to access the Shoalstone problems.


Sector photo uploaded now. Lovely place to chill on a lowish tide. Only elimination wall is truly non-tidal.

I'm literally standing on the beach now and to be honest I can't really see anything worth climbing the break down of sectors would be better if more clear... Like which ones are the non tidal beach problems!?

Beautiful little beach, the best in Brixham! Needs a bit more traffic :-) 'Last Days of Summer' is quality!
