Undeveloped and probably for a good reason.

A small slab surrounded by choss.

Would be a good idea to avoid climbing here when people are climbing in the zawn (Freeluncher's) below.


Access from the free parking at Pilton Green, (SS 446 871 or 51.561586, -4.242797). On the right-hand side of the B4247, approx. 2 miles before Rhossili. Park on the grass at the edge of the track leading to a farm. Cross the road, bear left and take the public footpath (signposted to Foxhole Slade) through the 'kissing-gate' on the left of the sandy-coloured house (Clifflands). Reach the top of a dry valley after about 20 minutes and numerous gates. (1.34km). At the landward end of the valley is a wooden kissing-gate (SS 438860).

Go through the gate at the top of the valley and descend a few metres to a green-painted steel gate.

After passing through the green gate, the coast path rises steeply then flattens out parallel to the fence line. Proceed diagonally west across the sward keeping just left of the island of gorse then walk down to the top of the zawn between the two obvious headlands.

Traverse around the top of the west side of the zawn along a narrow and exposed path to below the slab.
