Description

The Channel Islands are a collection of small islands off the coast of France in the bay of Mont St Michel. Legally speaking these are not part of the United Kingdom, but rather form part of the British Isles. The climbing is on sea cliffs scattered around the rugged coastline.

Jersey is the largest of the islands and has had probably the most interest from outside climbers, but Guernsey despite being smaller has more routes - probably due to the eagerness of the locals to discover and climb new routes.

The Islands have better weather than the rest of the UK, and are well setup for hosting climbers, and their families.

Getting There

The easiest way to get to the islands is by plane. Many of the airports in the UK have direct flights.
