Feeling out the moves on Rat Up a Drainpipe
This is the biggest and the best climbing area on the island with many good routes. Like most of the other areas along the south coast, much of the area is tidal.
The rock quality varies, but it isn't too hard to find good routes on good rock.
From La Corbiere walk east along the cliff path. Take a path on the right which leads down a scree slope to the bottom. Follow this and continue to reach the climbing areas.

Its only 6 feet, but it has the potential of feeling longer than that......[more] Browse More Classics in International
