Lancashire's best effort at a sea cliff, though only washed by the sea at spring high tide. The crag gets sun after midday and for the rest of the day. Excellent routes around the VS grade throughout the quarry with most routes being HVS or less. [John Roberts]
Access is fine as per the description in Lancashire Rock (2016 edition). Problems reported previously (blocked path etc.) seem to have been resolved.
|Jack Scout can be a lovely get away for an afternoons routing, can be quite muddy after high tide but is generally cleaner than in past years.
BMC Access agreement stipulates use of in situ staples for sport style lower-off on all routes (where equipped).

|Some totally class climbing for such a little scruffy crag. The seaward base can be hideously muddy after a high tide, but a traverse above crap/water is possible. Path along top is less than good.
