Description

The impressive sea stack at Blackchurch. In contrast to the Main Cliff, the seaward slab of the stack offers excellent slab climbing on sound rock. The routes are very sustained and generally protect well with small wires.

Due to it's tidal nature and northerly aspect, it can take a while for the base of the crag to dry out. The routes are best attempted on a breezy summer day.

Descent from all the routes is by a scramble down the landward side of the stack, possibly for about 3 hours either side of low tide. If setting off on a route late in the day, be careful not to get cut of by the sea!

Getting There

Access from Mill Mouth is possible for about 3 hours either side of low tide.
