Climbing type/Serious

From South Wales Climbing Wiki
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.

Crags classified as serious are crags which have some or all of the following:

  • Difficult access and/or retreat e.g. abseil, down-climbing, etc.
  • Significant objective dangers e.g. significant rockfall potential
  • Have mostly routes in the higher grades.
  • Have routes which are largely un-protectable or protectable only with difficulty
  • Tidal with critical escape points.
These crags are not suitable for most climbers and certainly not for families!
