Porthmoina Island (Bosigran Pinnacle)

Cornwall, ENGLAND

Climbs 12 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude Tidal – Faces ?

Crag features
Faces both E and W. The island runs N to S, connected to the mainland by tidal boulders - submerged at high tide and in heavy seas. Interesting "alpine-style" routes up to 330ft for those disdaining Bosigran's offerings. But note access below - do not climb here. Wait for the access ban to end (and no, climbing here when the ban is on will not end it sooner.) [UKC Ed 12/02]

Access notes
** Access is discouraged. See the BMC access notes for more details**

It's an agreed voluntary ban, it would not help to break it. DO NOT CLIMB HERE.

For historical note: Tidal. Not accessible for two hours either side of high tide. Beware heavy swell.

Approach as for Bosigran (NT car park by the two mine-stack ruins off the B3306). Descent directly below Ledge Climb on Bosigran's Main Face. Care required, and an eye on the state of the sea.

On a calm day, it is/could be really good to swim out and leap off the top of the landward side into the sea, at ever increasing heights according to your bottle. If there weren't any access problems, of course.
