Fox Promontory

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.

Approach notes

Tidal - many starts only accessible three hours either side of low tide.
Park at the Porthgwarra car park (pay and display, may become busy in summer and holidays). Head uphill up the tarmac road, and continue west along the coast path 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).
