Bosigran Ridge Area

Cornwall, ENGLAND

Climbs 15 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude Tidal – Faces W

Crag features
Offers the longest rock climb in Penwith (700ft), visually stunning. Though easy in grade, not for novices except with experienced companions: it is very runout and there is serious exposure. The harder routes are all single-pitch, such as Gallipoli (E1 5c).

Access notes
Tidal at base of first pitch of the Ridge and on the seaward climbs on the W face.

Approach as for Bosigran - NT car park off the B3306. Go left on the coast path to a path around Porthmoina Cove, and down to the bouldery base of the upper ridge. Memorial plaque for Marine Commandos (the cliff assault wing trained here).

Waltzing Matilda is bloody brilliant!

Some great little route at the foot of the Ridge, I'd particularly reccomend Gallipoli and Anzac Day.
