Rocktype Amphibiolite & S
Dave Talbot on Alpharatz © henry castle
A cliff with a big feel - multipitch climbing, mostly E-grades. The rock is Amphibiolite and Serpentine, and is generally sound.
Thirty nine routes in Total if including Mirror Wall, Chameleon Slabs and Soap Gully area.
Park at Predannack Wollas and follow the coast path south. Abseil or Scramble down to sea-level ledges - mixture of non-tidal and tidal but affected by swell and spray.
Access may be restricted, sometimes at short notice, due to the presence of very rare birds.
|We went down to do True North on 10/7/05 to find that there has been a big rockfall and the top half of the route no longer exists. This will also have taken out the two routes to the left. Unfortunately you can't see this until you've actually got down to the bottom of the cliff!|
