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).
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).

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