Berry Head's Old Redoubt crag is one of the UK's most impressive sea cliffs. The Great Cave is an awe-inspiring site, home to both the classic Hard Rock tick of Moonraker (HVS) and two Extreme Rock lines (Dreadnought E3, and Caveman E6). The severely overhanging nature of the crag is offset by the multitude of juggy rails that allow unbelievable positions to be had at 'reasonable' grades.
