Crag features

This is the area of cliffs running eastwards from the car park at the end of the road which separates Range West from Range East. Directly in line with the car park lies one of the area's iconic features, a huge arch of rock known as the Green Bridge of Wales. In the bay immediately to the east of the car park are the two sea stacks from which the area gets its name. To the west of this bay lies an area of cliffs as grand and imposing as any in the area, with a plethora of pillars and walls as well as the spectacular arch.

Despite their proximity to the car park, the routes have a very isolated feel to them. Furthermore, some of the routes appear to be on cliffs on the verge of collapse.

Approach notes

Approach from Stack Rocks in 3 mins.

Restricted Access

October 2017 Rockfall warning - following the Storms "Ophelia and Brian", there have been siginificant rockfalls in this area.  Part of the seaward leg of the Green Bridge of Wales has collpased, affecting many routes on the Green Bridge. It's highly likely that many other routes and cliff faces along this coast may be in a perilous state following these storms. 

Night firing normally occurs on Tues & Thurs but can alternate to Mon & Wed.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 15 August

Reason: Nesting Birds

The nesting restriction (1st Mar - 1st Aug) includes the W face of Flimston Ridge, Cauldron, and the Green Bridge of Wales. The Elegug stacks themselves are restricted from March 1st to August 15th to protect Kittewakes as well as Auks. 

Additionally, the PCNPA have requested climbers avoid disturbing the breeding grey seal colonies on the shoreline of Strata Walls, Stack Rocks, Stack Rocks Head, Linney Head, and Hobbyhorse Bay from mid-Aug until mid-Oct. If seals are present at this time (they are usually pupping on the beaches) then please avoid abseing/climbing in within 100m of them.  The presence of climbers close to pups can prevent mothers from coming in to feed the pups which can lead to the death of the pup if disturbance is prolonged.
