Crag features

The crag consists of three slabs alongside each other: The Seaward, Central and Right Slabs. In addition there is bouldering to be had on the beach by the main crag including on the obvious pinnacle.

Approach notes

Access is down a track past Larbrax farm which leads through a number of gates to the beach. Head north along the beach (easiest at high tide although not necessary) for about 1km.

There are adequate sling and nut placements to belay from, set a reasonable way back from the top of the left and centre of the crag (don't know about above the E7..!). It's a great, unusual spot and ideal for a confident E2 leader. Bring your trunks.

Belay stakes totally rusted through. Shame as it's a really scenic and amazing venue otherwise. Great rock, and lots more climbing to be had in the area though the listed climbs are probably the best.
