FOX PROMONTORY


Fox Promontory is composed of excellent vertical granite and, although tidal and less easily accessed than many of its neighbouring cliffs, it sees a steady trickle of visits. The climbs are all worthwhile, following good lines that are generally well-protected. The only drawback is the need for dry conditions on the North West Face, which are not frequently found. The location is magnificent, and the views from the cliff are breathtaking.
