Crag features

This is the line of crags, riddled with sea caves, running east from the unstable gulley at the Wash to the Green Bridge, underneath Flimston Down. A lot of the rock appears both intimidating and loose although in reality it is generally a lot more solid than first impressions suggest. Flimston Crag is an adventurous area with a low-tide traverse to committing overhanging climbing. There is some less serious climbing at Little Flimston and the left-hand section of the Perimeter Bays, but these are not beginners' routes.

Restricted Access

The crag is in Range West, an Army live-firing range. Briefed climbers (with a valid permit) can access the crag year round when the range is not iring (all weekends & Bank Holidays plus some weekdays). Night firing normally occurs on Tuesday & Thursday but may also alternate to Monday & Wednesday. The crag is in Range West, an Army live-firing range. Access is by permit and at weekends & Bank Holidays only.  Please do not place your own stakes - we have had to get each stake placement checked for dangerous ordnance and approved by conservation bodies. Putting your own stakes in may be dangerous and will definitely jeopardise our access relationship with the MOD and CCW.
