Crag features

A steep, roof laden crag split by a number of obvious crack lines. The sandstone is generally of reasonable quality but it has a sandy surface and flakes need to be treated with a degree of caution. A few stakes have been placed (one about 10m back from the top of Littoral Wanderer, others here and there) and some of the gorse cut back. Might be a good idea to visit the crag soon (Summer 2019) before the gorse grows and the stakes are hidden!

The starring system used is 1 star - something worth doing, no stars - best left alone. Although one man's meat is another man's poison.

The transfer from rock to top of crag is generally quite steep for ~1m. Ensure you get a couple of pieces of gear towards the top of your route before you embark on the top-out!

Approach notes

Park as for Primrose Bay but continue walking east along the track to its lowest point at the entrance to the quarry. Follow a path down through the gorse to the coast from here and walk east along the stony beach across the bay to the crag. Descent is at the west end of the crag - it is a bit narrow at one point so take care.

The routes are listed from left to right.

The crag is tidal. At low tide you can continue beyond the crag into a cave with a through route into a u-shaped bay entirely surrounded by cliffs. At a very low tide you can continue below the cliffs into the next bay. All very spectacular but finding a route to the top of these cliffs looks challenging! The crag has no sea birds nesting on it.
