At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Crag features

Overhanging slab, Big arch and some slabs. Several boulder problems on the beach, and some routes further round the coast. Rock holds little secrets of weird flakes to sharp crystaline pockets. Lots of areas for steep powerful bouldering but some of the rock is wet/loose so be careful. Also low tide works best to give you access along the whole beach.

Approach notes

In Newquay follow signs for Fistral and Little Fistral. Go to Little Fistral car park and walk down the steps to the beach, turn left and head along the beach a short distance, the first overhang you find is the overhanging slab "Crystal Craze" shortly followed by "Big Arch".
