Located immediately south of Funlands are extensive cliffs, with perfectly regular strata, which extend to Linney Head beneath the lookout station. There are two zawns, one small and one large, part way along and big terraces beneath, which are uncovered at most states of the tide.
A large rockfall occurred in 2007 at the north end of the walls and this area continues to be unstable. The remainder of the area provides mostly steep climbing on juggy walls.
Approach from Gupton Gate on the track marked by white posts in 55 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 firing (all weekends & Bank Holidays plus some weekdays). Night firing normally occurs on Tues & Thurs but can alternate to Mon & Wed.
