Baggy Point

North Devon

Excellent sea cliff climbing on stunning hard sandstone slabs, something akin to slate with more friction. Classic routes throughout the grades and some spectacular positions await the visiting climber. Owned and managed by the National Trust.

The cliff top areas feature plenty of loose rock, in particular around the Promontory gearing up platform so particular care needs to be taken to avoid kicking rock onto parties below.

Restrictions apply from 15 March - 30 June.

Reason: Nesting Birds

Following a review of climbing restrictions at Baggy Point, the historical restriction on the Long Rock was lifted in 2013. This means that both the Long Rock and the Promontory are unrestricted, but the remaining climbing areas from Scrattling Zawn to Concrete Wall inclusive and Central Walls to Slab Cove inclusive are still restricted for the duration of the nesting season.
