This huge and impressive section of coast has some major rock formations including the spectacular Green bridge and the awe-inspiring Caudron. Routes mostly in the harder grades but range from VS upwards. Access by long abseil or very low spring tides.
Stack Rocks is in Range East - MOD Firing Range. See cliff top notice board for most up to date info.
October 2017 Rockfall warning - following the Storms "Ophelia and Brian", there have been siginificant rockfalls in this area. Part of the seaward leg of the Green Bridge of Wales has collpased, affecting many routes on the Green Bridge. It's highly likely that many other routes and cliff faces along this coast may be in a perilous state following these storms.
Night firing normally occurs on Tues & Thurs but can alternate to Mon & Wed.
Dates: 1 March to 15 August
Reason: Nesting Birds
The nesting restriction (1st Mar - 1st Aug) includes the W face of Flimston Ridge, Cauldron, and the Green Bridge of Wales. The Elegug stacks themselves are restricted from March 1st to August 15th to protect Kittewakes as well as Auks.
Additionally, the PCNPA have requested climbers avoid disturbing the breeding grey seal colonies on the shoreline of Strata Walls, Stack Rocks, Stack Rocks Head, Linney Head, and Hobbyhorse Bay from mid-Aug until mid-Oct. If seals are present at this time (they are usually pupping on the beaches) then please avoid abseing/climbing in within 100m of them. The presence of climbers close to pups can prevent mothers from coming in to feed the pups which can lead to the death of the pup if disturbance is prolonged.
