Crag features

A newly developed sport crag overlooking the bay at Waterfoot. Good quality climbing on milky white limestone with interesting flint-stone features, easy access, and a useful spread of grades.

The location benefits from a relatively dry climate, being in the rain shadow of the nearby Antrim plateau. The rock dries fairly quickly and the steeper main wall stays dry in light rain. The cliff gets evening sun from around 5pm in spring/summer. Can be midgey on still days in summer/autumn. 

AS WITH ANY NEWLY DEVELOPED CRAG, WHILE THE ROUTE EQUIPPERS HAVE CLEANED THE ROCK TO THE BEST OF THEIR ABILITY SOME LOOSE HOLDS SHOULD BE EXPECTED - HELMETS ADVISABLE.

Approach notes

There's room for 5 or 6 cars in a lay-by below the crag, just before the two houses on the seafront. Cross through the gate with the blue Honesty Box - please make a small contribution to show appreciation to the local farmer who allows access on his land. Form the honesty box walk rightwards (sheep track on your right) for a short distance uphill to the crag towards the stack.

The neighboring farmer is happy for climbing to take place on this wall. Please stay off the crags above the farmer's fields to the west of the main cliff, as access to these hasn't been agreed.

Please act considerately to nearby homeowners as noise carries in this tranquil location - no loud whooping after your flash of Saturn V!

Access Advice

None. There is an honesty box put in place by the farmer just through the gate at the layby - please leave some money for parking & access. 

The nearby farmer hasn't expressed any concerns with climbing on this wall. Please stay off the crags above the farmer's fields to the west of the cliff as access to these hasn't been agreed.

Please act considerately to nearby homeowners, noise carries in this tranquil location - no loud whooping after your flash of Saturn V!
