A much quieter alternative to Chair Ladder, with mostly lower grade routes in a fine setting. A few harder offerings on Hella Wall which faces NW. Single and multi-pitch routes up to 160 ft.
Tidal on some parts, and all climbs affected by heavy swells.
Walk from Porthgwarra following the coast path for about 400m where it runs S above the cove's edge. Follow the path, keeping L at a branch. This leads to some rocky towers and wide breaks.

|Helluva Slab is well worth a visit, lovely situation and good climbing. Once you;ve lost the tide at chair ladder take the five minutes walk to go do it.|
