Crag features

Marvellous lines abound, single- and multi-pitch routes up to 200ft. Often very busy at Easter and Bank Holidays. Many low-grade classics including Doorpost (HS 4b), Little Brown Jug (VS 5a) and Anvil Chorus (VS 4c, much fallen off), and Suicide Wall (E1 5c), with mid-range musts like Bow Wall (E2 5b), Ghost (E3 5b), Vulcan (E5 6b).

Approach notes

Tidal in a few areas, but almost all unaffected.
Park at the NT car park off the B3306 (Morvah-Zennor) by the old mine-stack ruins. Follow rocky track N towards sea. Scramble over blocks downwards to find the crag looming on your R. The crag is 300yds long with most of the good routes towards the centre.

Access Advice

April 2016: please avoid the first pitch of Little Brown Jug as there is a couple of fulmars nesting on the vegetated patch on P1

Bosigran seems to be currently infested with ticks (in the last two weekend I know four people who have picked them up).
