Crag features

Bouldering on slopers and crimps on a small bluff of wave washed limestone at a secluded south facing cove accessed from Hopes Nose.

Approach notes

Park on Ilsham Marine Drive and go through the gates to access Hopes Nose headland. Follow the main path down the hill keeping the sea on your right until a steep descent path can be followed to get to the cove below. The prominent bluff is 2/3 along the beach.

I believe it is slate not limestone.

Volunteer to moderate Hopes Nose beach
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
