Hi,

 

Does anyone know any access routes down onto Bay Ness near Robin Hoods Bay...?

 

Are there any rope climbs down off the Cleveland way or is it a case of walking from Robin Hoods Bay...?

 

Any help appreciated

 

Thanks

 

Jason

Jason,
Currently it's more like 2.5 hours before and after
Low tide that you have time from RHB.
As everywhere, this stretch is also pretty poor
at the moment, probably even more so since
I've been over it a couple of times these past
two weeks - will post some finds next week when
I'm home again.
Did I meet you recently at Hawsker ?

If you go, watch out, it is very slippery in some
places due to algal growth, especially around the first corner
after the RHB slipway and at Castle Chamber.

Thanks Byron and AndyS


Yes it was me and Debbie you met at Hawsker Andy.

It was nice to meet you and i hope you had some good finds.

 

I will have to watch the tides when we have a look along that strectch.

It sounds like its easy to get cut off... maybe another option would be to walk from RHB to Hawsker then up the rope and back along Cleveland way to RHB if we run out of time!

 

Where's the best place to park at RHB...?

 

Thanks

Eh up Jason.
 

There are two roped access points in that area,but i would strongly recommend that you dont try either of them if you see them. One of them is used by a group of anglers known as the'crazy gang'. Both climbs come with a good possibility of deathDead - so steer clear mate.

 

Cheers

Hi Mark,
 

Hope your OK and you managed to get that new bone block you found back up the cliff.

 

You really should change your Username from Rocktapper to Boulder Cracker mate Thumbs Up

 

Thanks for the warning! The ropes sound lethal. Bay Ness access seems limited and tide dependent.

 

Still not sure the best place to park at RHB...?

 

Regards

 

Jason

Jason,Boulder Cracker hereSmile.
 

Naah,that block will have to go up in at least six piecesSick - be well worth it thoughWink.

 

Parking at bay can be difficult at this time of the year(any time of year in fact). There are two pay and display car parks -one at the top of the hill before you go down into the village itself,and the other about 300yds on the right before you get to the park just mentioned.

 

Or,you can park at Boggle Hole or Stoupe Beck(if you dont mind the walk).

 

Next time i see you i'll give you my mobile number,that way you can just give me a buzz re access

 

Cheers
