Lands End

Climbs 179 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude Tidal – Faces W

Crag features
A complex series of cliffs and zawns offering challenging (and often committing) climbing. The area consists of many separate crags, with the best climbs in the E3 and above grades, such as Longships Wall (E3 6a), Day Tripper (E4 6a).

Access notes
Tidal in most areas. Beware large swells: secure yourself on wave-washed platforms.

The Lands End complex is privately owned. Climbers can park in the complex for free though (provided you explain you just want to climb - see BMC access notes), or up by the First and Last House for some of the more northerly cliffs.

The buttress with Black Wednesday (E5 6b) has been swept away from half height (above bolt) by the 2014 winter storms. Descent route down VDiff on seaward face of World's End buttress still present!
