Description

The towering cliff behind the photogenic Blackchurch Rock is an acquired taste. While some of the routes do involve some climbing on solid rock, this is inevitably interspersed with some good, old-fashioned XS climbing.

Apart from the far left of the cliff, the routes here are non-tidal, perhaps a good warm-up while waiting to access Blackchurch Rock? Also North facing, so can get cold, but generally doesn't get as greasy as the stack. Rarely busy: you will most likely have the entire cliff to yourself.

Getting There

From the end of the path down to Mill Mouth, shun the sea stack in front of you and turn right to the looming, vegetated cliff.
