Description

one of the most intimidating sections of sea-cliff in the West Country; its tiered overhangs seemingly impossible to breakthrough. However, the rock is some.of the most climbable to be found anywhere, and is peppered with jugs and handrails that allow the outrageous over- hangs and walls to be scaled.The Old Redoubt holds some of the most sought-after long sea-cliff classics in the UK, but increasingly its flanking sea-level traverses, tackled as deep water solos, are catching up the popularity of the 'roped' routes. Should the sea-conditions or tides restrict access to the base of the Old Redoubt, the nearby Red Wall area offers some short, but pleasant pilches.

Getting There

Follow signs for Brixham. On approaching the town, pick up the brown tourist signs for Berry Head and follow them to a car park on the headland (fee). Approaches to each cliff are described in the relevant section.
