Thurba head from Fall Bay © Carpe Diem

Crag features

Less climbing than you'd expect, and almost all of it E3 and above. Single- and multi-pitch routes up to 48m.

Approach notes

Tidal: access only 30mins either side of low tide.

Ban on climbing (reason not given - birds?) March 1 - August 14.

From Pitton turn L (south) at an easily-missed crossroads to park about 100m further along, in the field on the L at Pitton Farm - put some money in the honesty box. Walk down a farm track, then bear R past farm buildings to the path leading through a narrow valley to the E end of Mewslade Bay: 10 minutes.
