Jump to: navigation, search

A listing here under this categorisation is intended as a very rough guide only. Climbers are encouraged to always assess local conditions before choosing to climb at a particular location.

Taking the family climbing (or including children in your group) is always a serious business.

Crags classified as Family are crags which, ideally, have all or most of the following:

  • Very easy access. e.g. Easy and/or short-ish walk-in.
  • Few objective dangers e.g. lower risk of rockfall
  • Safe areas for non-participants
  • If tidal, then easy and obvious escapes
  • A selection of routes in the lower grades
N.B. Crag conditions are liable to change because or weather, tides and rock fall. Climbers are encouraged always to assess thoroughly local conditions before choosing to climb at a particular location.
