A north facing pump fest, umbrella crag if wind is from any direction other than the N. The base of the crag is tricky, lots of chasms and crevices that swallow gear/jumpers/small children...although the rightmost routes start from an easy base (Mr Potato Head and The Blight). The three left most lines start from the top of the perched block...this involves a tricky step to get across and (especially) back.
Rock quality is generally sound but routes will still evolve over time.
Park at Watcombe car park. Walk down to the beach. The crag is on the R headland looking out to sea and can be reached by 5 minutes of boulder hopping.
|Would strongly advise all belayers to wear a helmet. Several potatoes came off Maris Piper today and one got me on the head. Hard to dodge them or predict where they will bounce and land.
