Climbing

Having travelled 11,000 miles, one man was so keen to climb the famous Devil's Slide that he started in a hailstorm. He left a record in the Climbers' Log in the Tavern, where experiences are noted, and suggested new routes for the 60 rock faces which make the island such an important centre for the sport.

Click here for details of year round climbing restrictions and seasonal closures from the 31st March to 15th September. Nesting seabirds are protected by law and human activity round nesting colonies can increase the spread of avian influenza and risk it poses to humans.  Always keep over 100m from nesting seabirds. Any changes to restrictions will be placed on this webpage and also advertised through the BMC and UKC. Please check the noticeboard in the Tavern on arrival for any changes to these restrictions when you arrive.
