Cribba Head Cornwall, ENGLAND
Climbs 30 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 40m a.s.l – Faces SW
For a small outcrop, it gets a wide range of grades in. There is scope for further development in the mid-grades; the top levels are taken by Storms Over Africa (E6 6c), Pre-Marital Tension (E8 6c) and Question Mark (E8 6c) all of which have seen repeats. A worthwhile afternoon for climbers of all grades.
Park at Treen carpark (off the B3315); alternatively at Penberth. From Treen, turn L and then sharp L to follow a path between houses and over a stone stile. Take the signposted path beside and through fields to the coastal path. Walk E for 250m to the top of a slope: the top of the W Buttress is visible to the R. Follow vague paths through gorse and grass to the broad top of the headland.

What can I say! From easy to insane 15 meter climbs, with some of the best faces you will see and plenty of spots for top ropes. A great place for all abilities and to push those technical grades.
Kernack ** (HVS) is the sort of climb that gets newbies hooked for life, an absolute classic.
The only downfall is that one of the most famous climbs in the South Coast area 'Pre-Marital Tension (E6)' is difficult, and not advised, to set up a top rope on. Time to start getting good hey!! |
