Tater-du Cornwall, ENGLAND
Climbs 75 – Rocktype Greenstone – Altitude Tidal – Faces S
Greenstone, not granite - the only one on the Cornish south coast. Good protection and belays. Most routes in the sub-E1 grades, with single- and multi-pitch routes up to 160ft. Your ticklist should include Martell Slab (VS 4b).
Tidal at the base of the Main Face and Sentry Box; accessible three hours either side of low tide.
Beware the random but uncommon 70-decibel blasts from the nearby lighthouse.
Park at Lamorna Cove (SW 450238) and follow the coastal path for a mile W. The cliff is just W of the lighthouse.

The grades and descriptions for the new mini-routes on the Seaward Craglets and in Lighthouse Zawn are mostly correct, but there are one or two errors. For example, Sunshine (in the Zawn) is a pleasant VD, not VS. I will try to get all remaining mistakes corrected.|

The new stuff from Brian Mullen and others here is pretty short, but really worthwhile. If you want a low stress, non-tidal day out in a gorgeous, sunny and quiet setting, then you could do a whole lot worse. Like a mini Cornish version of Reiff. Good stuff.
