Rocktype Sandstone (hard)
Altitude 3m a.s.l
A pleasant coastal outcrop providing short boulder problems, with the exception of a few higher walls on surprisingly good solid sandstone on the whole part. THIS VENUE IS TIDAL. PLEASE CHECK TIDE TIMES BEFORE VISITING. (The starts of most problems will be wet at high tide) Landings are all of a blocky nature and very slippery so care is needed and mats pretty much essential. With a little imagination there is lots of scope for a variety of different boulder problems. Small roofs, slabs, sloper traverses, easy/hard etc. Further updates to this crag will follow. The history of climbing here is so far unknown. Please feel free to contact me with any information and history.
From the A189 take B1334 Newbiggan-by-the-Sea and head for Newbiggin Maritime Centre. Park adjacent to St.Bartholomew's Church. The crag is located on the coastline slightly beyond the Church and in front of the Church Point caravan park a few minutes walk away.

|Visited this today and I think there’s a lot of potential here for a decent circuit. It’s not very high but sit starts will sort that out. Thought the port-side had a bit more going for it. well worth a visit and somebody local needs to start developing and recording. Would be a great little venue, with varied solid rock, super location and easy, quick approach. |
