Pen Olver (The Lizard)Cornwall, ENGLAND
Climbs 67 – Rocktype Amphibiolite & S – Altitude ? – Faces SW
Park in Lizard and follow signs for the Housel Bay Hotel. From the Hotel, follow the coast path east until you reach the brown wooden Marconi hut. Turn right and follow the headland until a balanced rock becomes visible on the r/h side. Turn right and descend straight down the grassy gully (rocks on the right are easiest to scramble down.) This will bring you to a large gearing up ledge, from where an abseil is easily rigged or the gully and rocks on the right may be descended.

* Climbs listed in red are waiting to be checked by a crag moderator, and may not be accurate.
It is easier to locate this crag using the CC guide description than the photo in West Country climbs. Nb. Whilst Rockfax is correct it is not clear that there is a huge bay seperating the two paths shown in the picture. You'll have no problems if you understand the climbs are on the headland closest to the brown hut.
