Matchless - a Culm classic © Kafoozalem

Crag features

An imposing full 50m high sheet of steep culm. Prone to vegetation so do your bit and have a garden on the way up / down! There is a reasonable abseil station above 'More than a Match'.

Approach notes

The boulder hop round from the south is long but not too bad. It has the added advantage of allowing a combined trip with Hippa Rock which is a lot less tidal.

Matchless used to be excellent if you got it just after it had been gardened, needs doing about every two years to maintain its 3 star status.
