Crag features

Located on Marine Drive, roughly 1km along the road from Parisella's Cave.

There is a topo in the North Wales Bouldering guide, by S Panton. For more up-to-date problem listings use the search function on http://www.northwalesbouldering.com

Approach notes

There are currently no access issues and there is parking alongside the Pill Box Wall (although you can walk up in no time from the cave, where there are more spaces).

Access Advice

Due to suspect rock and the proximity of the public road, climbing is only permitted on routes which are between the green painted marker posts and have fixed lower-offs. Routes and areas of cliff between the red painted posts are banned due to instable rock and the risk of falling rock injuring passers-by. All routes finish at BMC installed and maintained lower-offs - and on no account should climbers continue beyond these to the top of the crag due to the increased risk of falling rock and to protect rare and protected plant species.

 

Climbing is only allowed after 6pm on the routes above the Marine Drive during Bank Holiday weekends and during the school summer holiday July15th until Sept 8th, 

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 26 March to 15 July

Reason: Nesting Birds

Climbing is only allowed after 6pm on the routes above the Marine Drive during Bank Holiday weekends and during the school summer holiday July15th until Sept 8th, 

New Seasonal Climbing Restriction for the Mayfair Wall Area only. March 2020 until July 15th or until the chicks have fledged. 

Choughs  and Peregrines are nesting on Mayfair Wall and as these birds have special legal protection, all the the routes  on Mayfair wall have a seasonal restriction for 2020  and signs are in place.  It is a criminal offence to disturb nesting Choughs or Peregrines . The restriction will be lifted immediately when the birds fledge or if the nest fails.  Signs are in place at the base of the cliff. 

In addition in most years , Kesterels nest on the route Norman's Wisdom in the Testament Area. Please do not climb that route or the two routes either side until the birds have fledged, which should be the end of June.
