Crag features

The most northerly of the granite cliffs. Good pitches but lines may seem indistinct. Near to the sandy Portheras Beach whose attractions may seem greater - but beware ship's wreckage if swimming >from the middle of the beach. Perhaps climbing is safer: single- and multi-pitch routes up to 150ft.

Approach notes

Tidal on lower cliff.
Approach from the B3306 coast road at an unmarked turning just W of Morvah (SW 398 353). Some parking at Chypraze Farm - offer some payment (or we might not get parking in future).
Walk from there down the wide track twds the beach: Carn Clough is on the E side, via a vague path along the cliff edge from where the main track swings sharply down to the L twds the beach, above a wreck warning sign.

As owner of this land I feel we may need to chat if such activity is being organised upon it Regards Ian Flindall (Chypraze Farm)
