[Atom Head, 2 kb]A surprisingly nice climb on good rock, there has been a small rockfall at the bottom but does not effect the route. Abseil off and dont climb over on to the top untill you have traversed under the gorse from the final hard move.

Ticklists: Culm - When the tide's in., Alex's Cornwall and Devon ticklist.
