Porthguarnon Cove

Climbs 53 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 10m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Single- and multi-pitch routes up to 130ft, offering lots to entertain the sub-E1 climber: there are only a few Extremes. No major climbs but lots of enjoyable "rambles" on good granite. Porthguarnon West faces East, offering shade in the afternoon.

Approach notes
From Penberth Cove (limited parking) follow the coast path E for 0.5mi till it drops steeply to the cove.
