Discontinous line of low cliffs with bouldering and quite a few sports routes.
The rock is a young limestone, much like Portland.
Quite a few of the routes have hard starts and hard finishes with soft climbing in the middle.
Helmets may be a good idea as we had quite a few bits fall off when we were there!
It is tidal - exiting at high tide could be soggy..
Bolted with staples - they look ok and have held falls!
Bouldering has seen a lot of development recently but James Squire, Rob Stanfield and Jack Bradbrook. Online guide here: http://www.beastlysquirrelblog.com/#/ladye-bay/4569514566
The access notes in the Avon Guide are outstanding. Just follow them to the letter and you can't go wrong.
|a word of warning to anyone who isn't keen on creepy-crawlies. Some of the pockets hold clusters of inch long sea woodlouse things, and they drop out on you. I had to spend 20 mins with a stick and a torch, dangling on our rope and extracting them from dark cracks before the rest of the party would deign to go near the routes!|

|There appears to be roughly two new lines of bolts between "Stick Insect" and "Sloped beyond Imagination". Does anyone have any information on these?|
