Near here is also Pinnacle Crag (listed separately in the Database) on the opposite side of the road to the main crag which offers generally easier routes on very clean rock. Normally dries quickly from the wind.

Must do Boulders: The Untrained Ear f7A+ and Eriophorum angustifolium f6B, The Settler f7C
Look out for any nesting birds, especially Peregrine, Kestrel and other raptors nesting on the crag. Peregrine have been seen using the area and it is a historic nest site but disturbance is leading to nest failures (as seen at Brin crag). Be aware of this and avoid any areas being used by nesting birds in general. Refere to Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 if in any doubt.
Great Tit's are nest building in the half way horizontal break/crack on Slings E1 at Seventy Foot Wall, please do not climb this line until the end of the breeding season.
|There are some well worth doing climbs here. It's true that midgies can be a problem in the wrong conditions but pick the right afternoon or sunny evening and a great time can be had on the starred routes. The other negative comments do not do it justice!
