About Daddyhole Area(OS):

This area consists of four smaller cliffs, all around 80 feet tall, and one large cliff at 200 feet tall. The Main Cliff has nothing lower than VS on it, and most of the routes are considered quite serious. The surrounding smaller cliffs do offer plenty of DIFFS and up though, for those who do not want to tempt the tides and the descent to sea level needed to reach the foot of the Main Cliff.
Nearest town or city: Torquay
Directions: OS 202 GR SX 928 628 Alt. 36m
Seven miles southeast of Torquay. From the harbor, take the Babbacombe Road (B3199) and after a few hundred yards signs will point you rightwards toward Daddyhole Plain. After about half a mile a car park will be reached above Daddyhole Cove. Descent to the main cliff is made by following the ridge down to the sea, and then a SEVERE traverse. For the other cliffs, paths can be found leading off the coastal path.
