Restricted Access

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.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 1 August

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.

18m. No description has been contributed for this climb.

βeta: Lovely route. Got some gear high up on the left before the traverse and then did the traverse to the hole for a sling. You can protect the second with a rope vertically above on the traverse if you get the ropework right.
