Crag features

A collection of crags lying high above the sea midway between Thurba Head and Paviland. Not popular enough to have got all the loose rock off - take care. Routes up to 45m.

Approach notes

Approach from Pitton to Thurba Head: from there, take the cliff E for 15min past a wall and stile to an obvious valley leading to the sea - Ram Grove. (40 mins) The Three Sisters are E. Deborahs Overhang is 185m E of the third. Alternatively, from Pilton Green car park (see Paviland) take footpaths over fields: after reaching the stile at the head of the valley, take the first stile in the wall on the R. At the clifftop, follow the path past a stone wall down one, then two valleys. At the second valley mouth is a shattered pinnacle on the R (W): Deborahs Overhang is below this. The comments about dodgy bolts are wrong

More info
Went to Third Sister and was pleasantly surprised. Good routes for those climbing in the 6s on good rock with very generous bolting. Well worth a visit.
