Since 2014, signficant landslide activity has occurred along this part of the island. The most significant of which is disappearance of the huge spoil heap that used to exist between Blacknor South and Far South crags, which the access path ran down. This whole grass-covered slope has now slid away, leaving a newly-unearthed cliff in its place and making the previous access route impossible without abseiling. Landslides have also meant that the ground level at the base of the crag has dropped by 15-20ft in places, meaning some first bolts are much higher than before. For those routes having a long clipstick is well worthwhile to allow pre-clipping of the now very high first bolts.
Parking and Approach
All the Blacknor cliffs are approached from the signposted 'Climbers & Walkers Car Park' at the far south west corner of the housing estate in Weston. This is pay and display and parking wardens regularly patrol this car park so don't be tempted not to pay!
Don’t park elsewhere on the housing estate - if the car park is full, park on the main street in Weston and walk down the path next to the Royal Exchange pub.
