Crag features

Plymouth's premier climbing venue is a low angled slab of immaculate rock quality and impressive dimensions. Upward progress is achieved by friction padding, and requires composure and a cool head. Protection is sparse, though arguably adequate for the nature of the climbing and a pair of half ropes are required for the 40m abseil descent. South facing and quick drying. Hot conditions will give poorer friction.

Approach notes

It is situated in Plymouth near Hooe Lake.

Access Banned

The landowner (Wainhomes) has unfortunately banned access to Radford Quarry despite the BMC's best efforts to negotiate access here. A represenative for Wainhomes has informed the BMC they they intend to take civil action against any climbers found in the quarry in future.
