Hippa Rock Cornwall, ENGLAND
Climbs 15 – Rocktype Culm – Altitude Tidal – Faces N
A fairly accessible crag with some good slab climbing. Some very well protected routes and some protected by very worn out pegs that look pretty useless (April 07)
About a mile north of Sharpnose is a north facing crag. Scramble and slither down the ridge to get to it. Alternatively follow the footpath to the beach a few hundred metres to the south and boulder hop round. April 2014 - The landward slab has two decent metal belay stakes in place that are set well back. The seaward face has three very old looking bits of tat around a couple of boulders. The slither down the scree is fine.

Excellent high tide venue. Two stakes and some tat joining them with a maillon to ab off. Great rock. The approach is a tad spicy. Could do with a hand rope by the top.|

I agree with Kafoozalem. The initial scramble/slither is harrowing. Lots of loose rocks and some intimidating gaps opening up. Not sure if there hasn't been a large landslide. Needs a stake.

An underrated crag. Coitionary Tales, Tales of Don Juan and Volupte are all worth two or more stars.
The "slither" down the ridge is fairly serious and really needs a stake and grab rope.
