FLIMSTON BAY


Regarded as a bit of an outpost from the more popular Pembroke haunts, Flimston Bay offers plenty of decent routes including many at a useful grade. There is climbing all over the area but for most visitors, much of this will be too hard or too esoteric. The four walls covered in this section include three easy-angled slabs, and one hard-angled wall. The two narrow slabs of Flimston Crack and Bow-Shaped Slab give the full sea cliff experience at a grade that most can manage. The most popular area is the accessible Crystal Slabs - heaven for those into slabby VSs. Adding another dimension to the area is the unique Mosaic Wall - heaven for people who are into well-protected savagely-strenuous crack climbs of E3 and above ..... and I know there are a lot of you out there!
