South Coast of Guernsey


The smaller of the big two Islands Guernsey is a popular place for people to visit. It makes an ideal destination for a climbing holiday. The climbing is mainly to be found along the rocky south coast, but there are some other smaller areas, especially in the far north.

No matter where you base yourself, you will only be a short distance from the climbing since the Island isn't too big.

Take care as you drive around since the country lanes are extremely narrow, and what look like grassy banks lining the roads are in fact hard granite stone walls!

Getting There 

Fly directly in to the airport.

Start up the thin shallow cracks. You get some good small gear at the tops of these cracks.With the gear placed launch out on a lonely lead, since the gear will only protect the first 40 feet of climbing.Small crimps and shallow cracks lead up and over a small overlap then more crimping continues on up directly to the crux moves 6 feet below the niche. Its only 6 feet, but it has the potential of feeling longer than that......[more]   Browse More Classics in International
