Main Face Climb* D

Rockfax Description
At popular initiation to the delights of Sennen with steady climbing and plenty of protection. Start at the base of a left-trending line of weakness that ends at a mid-height ledge.
1) 13m. Move up to the left-trending line of weakness and follow this on good holds to a large ledge and belay.
2) 10m. The corner-crack at the rear of the ledge has holds aplenty. © ROCKFAX
