Tim on Journey to Ixtlan, Carn Gowla © Geoffers
Compact rock with some brilliant multi-pitch routes up to 350ft. Protection can be sparse, and pegs should also be treated with care. Aim for Sackful Of Clowns (HVS 5a), The Tomb (E2 5b), The Awakening (E3 5c), America (E4 5c) and Guernica (E6 6b).
Tidal in most parts.
From St Agnes on the N coast follow the minor coast road to a turning on the R. Follow rough track to parking near the coastguard station. 400m E is the top of the America Wall. Abseil access is best.
|Further to previous comment and a general lack of updating by the moderator: Demerara is E2 5a with a huge fall potential from the slopey slab crux in the middle, this would be extremely dangerous for a VS leader to get on. Rotwand at least E1 5a - E1 pitch is the top 4c pitch with huge run out on fragile holds and mud. The extremes are better graded.|

|The routes listings are all from the older guidebook. There have been many changes since then to the grades, stars, and even existence of some routes.|
