Gully Wall

Gully Wall

The most visited area at Beauport due to the number of quality routes and easy access.

Approach

Approach

From the car park, follow the cliff path South until you reach a bench at the tip of the headland. Break from the path here and scramble down further to the South and the crag should become visible on the left. Continue down left, under and around a tree until you reach a platform area just before the gully which is the usual meetup point.
