Slender stack between the Hams
Slender stack between the Hams
Amid a plethora of stacks, geos and natural arches, this one between North and South Ham stands out as being particularly slender, and is in a relatively sheltered narrow bay, just offshore from a sandy beach. Access from the path looks to be not entirely risk-free, as the cliffs here are crumbling - deep cracks appearing within the grassy cliff edge. From a bit west of this view, a zig-zag path down the SE corner does become visible, though it looks a little loose. From the sea (and it is a fantastic place for a sea kayak trip) access would be straightforward, though the beach is not one I'd choose for a lunch stop, given the state of the cliff above.
