Predannack Head (Lizard Point)

Cornwall, ENGLAND

Climbs 157 – Rocktype Mica schist – Altitude ? – Faces SW

Crag features
The rock type is mostly horneblende schist and there is no real soapstone to speak of though some of the mica schists do have a distinctly 'shiny' appearance. The rock quality is generally good and friction excellent over most of the headlamd.

It is a complex headland of zawns, cliffs, ridges, slabs, pinnacles and many hidden little nooks with a wide range of climbing, mostly on very good rock, with grades ranging from Moderate to E5 (and, for this coast, the obligatory XS) Recent development over the last two years has been extensive and has uncovered a great adventure playgorund for those determined enough to explore. The Climbers Club is currently working on a new and separate guide to The Lizard.

Access notes

From Predannack Wollas Farm (SW 669 162) go over the stome stile in the northern corner of the car park and follow a signposted path, to join the main coastal footpath near the top of The Diamond Wall approx 200 metres north.
