Climbs 170 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude Tidal – Faces W
Climbs at this crag
Mostly not tidal but CAN BE DANGEROUS with swells. People have been washed out to sea from the non-tidal platform - beware.
>From the A30 (Penzance-Land's End) turn W (R from Penzance) to Sennen. Park in the Sennen Cove car park at very end of high street.
From the (redundant) coastguard lookout, either (1) set up a careful abseil to the platform, avoiding interference with climbers on routes and padding the rope against sharp crystals or (2) downclimb Griptight Gully (Diff) which faces N towards Demo Route; or (3) walk S past the lookout, to a split boulder and down a narrow gully that lines up with a strange-looking offshore rock. Scramble leftwards towards the main platform. Beware swells - you can get swept off into the sea.
