Sennen Cornwall, ENGLAND
Climbs 170 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude Tidal – Faces W
Golden hand-ripping granite with routes up to 90 ft. Many sub-E1 popular routes makes this a popular venue for learners. Even the experienced will enjoy Demo Route (HS 4b). Also includes top-notch hard routes, most the work of Mark Edwards, such as 29 Palms (E6 6c) and Tears of a Clown (E7 6b). Bouldering as you like it on the wide platform.
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.
