Crag features

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 the rock can be crumbly in places. 
It is tidal - exiting at high tide and could be soggy...
Bolted with staples - they look ok and have held falls!

Bouldering has seen a lot of development by James Squire, Rob Stanfield and Jack Bradbrook. With potential for a few more new problems here and there.

Approach notes

Park on bay road, follow a footpath leftwards and head down a set of narrow stairs towards a pebble beach. The main wall is presented on the left, with the doughnut caves requiring a scramble over rocks to the right.

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?

If anyone is after a video of 'Starboard Traverse Extension', 'Seaside Scare', 'Notion' or 'Tactical Nuke' just e-mail me and I'll send you the video!
