Restricted Access

Seals frequently haul out onto the beach at all time of the year. If seals are present give them a wide berth and plenty of space (ideally at least 100m).  Please do not bring dogs to this venue. Seals normally produce pups from late August onwards (usually until late October but can be later)  and when pups are present its best to avoid the area. Do not get between the mother seal and its pups as this can lead the pup to be abandonded or to try to swim before its grown enough.

Seasl also haul out to moult in early spring and climbers are asked to avoid the area during this time - this will be indicated by on-site signs. 

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 31 August to 30 November

Reason: Other Conservation

The whole beach is now a very important seal breeding site with over 114 (!!) breeding seals and pups counted on the beach in 2016.  Due to the small scale of the beach and the high likelyhood of distrubance (breeding seals are protected by law), the local council and wildlife trust are now enforcing a total ban on all public access (including bouldering) during this time. Please observe the on site signs which will indicate if seals are present. 
From sitting, utilise your choice of weird press to gain the start holds of the stand.
