/ sport climbing in Cornwall
Probably best to stick to the surfin' down that neck of the woods. The best (only AFAIK ?) climbing near Penzance is staunchly trad.
The only place I know of that's bolted in Cornwall ( to a degree) are the quarrys on Bodmin Moor. These are a bit of a mission from where you're going. And the routes are those which really don't have a sniff of natural pro on them, which could also be interpreted as a hold! ie the routes are hard. Without looking at the guide book, the easiest route is probably (Cornish) 6b!
However, that said, if you were more local I'd suggest they were well wory a visit give the quality of the granite in the area.
No sport near Penzance but good bouldering at Aire Point near the surf beaches of Sennen and Guinver. Also bouldering at Godrevy Point near Hayle.
Yep as Merlin says, most of the sport is on Bodmin Moor; with a handful at Bearah Tor, Gold Digging's Quarry, Carbilly Tor and the majority at Cheesewring.
The remainder are a bit closer to you in Luxulyan Valley in Lost World Quarry and Luxulyan Valley Quarry. If it's wet and you climb 7c the the three star and everdry Strongbow is worth a go. Otherwise as Iain says you'd be better off sticking with the bouldring and -if you can - the class trad climbing out west.
