Lands End © Neil Higgins

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).

Approach 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.

Rockfax App

Available in the Rockfax App

The Rockfax App brings together all the Rockfax climbing information with UKC logbooks and presents it into a user-friendly package for use on Apple iOS devices (Android version to follow).


Guidebooks

West Country Climbs

West Country Climbs is a major Rockfax guide to one of the UK’s most celebrated, sunny and diverse climbing regions. The book is fashioned in Rockfax’s award-winning layout and design, and copiously illustrated with action photographs of the climbs and cliffs that reflect the quality and variety of climbing experiences to be had on offer in the UK’s most popular holiday destination - the West Country. This is a selected route and buttress guidebook which covers the best 900 routes from the crags listed below.
More info
Went today. The bloke on the car park told me that they hadn't let climbers park for free for 2 years, so make sure you have 3 quid for the parking.
Le Chevalier Mal Fet - 16/Apr/15
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!
Lumbering Oaf - 12/Sep/14
