Crag features

Perhaps esoteric zawn climbing up to 21m. Advisable to use an abseil rope for the top belay - the tops are chossy. Some seepage after rain. Everything in PFFW is E1 or E2; the variations are in Paviland Far West, the best being Liberty (E2 5c**).

Approach notes

Tidal in Paviland Far West. From Pilton Green (B4247): park on open land on the N side of the road opposite a white house. Signpost L of the house says Paviland Cave: follow path S through fields to a stile at the head of a valley. Over stile, bear R (W) up a slope to open clifftop, then to the headland R of the valley. PFFW is the narrow tidal just R of the headland; PFW the more seaward zawn just under the W extremity.
