Downhill

This section of cliff occasionally suffers mudslides in the winter and as a result the routes can be dirty. The climbing here is definitely worth seeking out, especially on the upper sections, although the starts are tough.
Approach - Drive through Weston and, at a roundabout, turn right into Reap Lane and park after the first traffic-calming installation. From here go past the second traffic-calming installation, and pick up a footpath/track on the right (opposite Rip Croft) that heads towards the huge Southwell Business Park complex. At the massive fence, turn right and follow it to the coast path. From the coast path, drop down a path that cuts back right and then left to the small walls. Follow the path under the other sectors and down to the boulder beach. Scramble up direct from the boulder beach.

Falling with Style
Break left at a low shelf to a tricky groove. It can sometimes be very dirty.

Screw You Hippy
The best of the slabs has good orange rock. High in the grade and the start can prove to be a bit of a stopper.

After a crunchy start, this one has some interesting groove-climbing higher up.

Some of the flakes ring hollow. A bold route.

Break right out of Aaron the Aardvark to an arete-hugging finish. A good route.
