Climbing Bird on a Wire - South Zawn Pembroke © Jmzhow

Crag features

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 notes

Approach from Gupton Gate on the track marked by white posts in 55 mins.

Access Advice

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.

When approaching from Gupton Gate,in the nesting season (March to July) Please note there is a restricted area on the middle section of Frainslake Beach due to nesting Ring Plovers - please stay on top of the dunes, or at low tide, low down on the beach when passing this area.

Thank you!
