Crag features

Approach notes

PARKING - IMPORTANT

The locals are very friendly and reasonable and are happy for people to park here but they are concerned about their own access. Please take great care not to block any gates or access for local residents. If there is no room to park then please park a little further away and walk in.

KITCHEN AT REIFF - Sara Nason is now running a small kitchen here and welcomes climbers for soup and bread lunches, teas and suppers which may help supply a much needed sustenance after a climb or walk.

Access to the area is gained by walking along the coastal path from the southerly Reiff cliffs. Much of the path cuts through heather and peat bogs and can be wet. Access to the climbs is by simple descent from the Easterly end of the cliffs. The descent route is marked by a series of small standing stones at the cliff top pointing to the descent ledges.
