Fox Promontory

Cornwall, ENGLAND

Climbs 40 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude ? – Faces SW

Crag features
Plenty to entertain both VS-HVS climbers and those operating at E2. Sustained and quite steep but well-protected (mainly) single-pitch routes of up to 90ft. Aspect is actually south, west and north: pick your time of day. The North Face is usually damp until the sun hits the face in late afternoon.

Access notes
Tidal - many starts only accessible three hours either side of low tide.

>From the car park at Porthgwarra, head uphill up the tarmac road. Carry on to a distinctive granite-built wall. 80m further on is the rocky top of the headland from which the Promontory is reached (by boulder hopping).
