Climbs at this crag
How to get there: The zawn is located on the north side of Pentire headland. Parking can be found on the road that runs along the northern side of the headland by south fistral. Follow the coastal footpath (sticking right by the cliff top not the large bridle path) for about 5 mins, a narrow zawn will be seen. The only climb takes the corner immediately in front of you. The zawn is tidal and can only be reached by a wade/ swim. Take care of the swell and tides in this area. The climbing takes is found in a very narrow and rather uninspiring zawn. The rock is for the most part fragile the one route recorded here climbs a corner and slab, which provides relatively secure rock and adequate protection (apart from the top 20’). Belays were from a car driven and parked up the footpath using a 60m-ab rope trailed down to the necessary area!
