Crag features

The Leaning Wall area is the first of the Benllech crags when walking northwards on along the beach. It provides short but good quality, highly featured limestone which is mostly vertical to gently overhanging. The routes are well bolted with stainless steel bolts and the climbing tends to be pumpy in nature. The first bolts are high on the sea level routes so a clipstick might be useful for some but is not essential.

Approach notes

Travelling West on the A55 cross over the Menai Straight into Anglesy then turn off on the A5025. Follow the road for 7 miles to reach Benllech. Turn right on to Beach Road and follow this round to a Pay and Display carpark in front of the main beach (£4.50 for 12 hours).

From the left side of the beach (facing out) follow the shoreline for about 10 minutes to find the first routes on the Leaning Wall. Access may be limited around high tide.
