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.
