This is the line of cliffs running westward from Greenham Common and rising above an extensive tidal shelf system offering very fine climbing.
Approach from Stack Rocks in 10-15 mins.
The crag is in Range West, an Army live-firing range. Briefed climbers (with a valid permit) can access the crag year round when the range is not live (all weekends & on Bank Holidays plus some weekdays). Night firing normally occurs on Tues & Thurs but can alternate to Mon & Wed. The eastern end of the platform gets wet VERY QUICKLY once the tides is in, but the left-hand section is non-tidal. Cautionary note; This platform can become a very serious place to belay if the sea gets up.
Dates: 1 March to 10 July
Reason: Nesting Birds
Nesting restriction (1st March - 1st August) includes King Prawn to Luck of the Devil inclusive. Note: The abseil hole may be used to access non-restricted climbs only but please do not loiter in the area of the hole as this will prevent birds from accessing their nest site and feeding chicks.
Seasonal Restriction lifted early on 10-05-17 and climbing now allowed.
|This is a great friendly crag. Mostly solid (care towards the top of routes), non-tidal, big platforms. Lots of easy stuff too.|
