I had my only leader fall to date at this crag, on the VS 4c Sheep Dog Black Crag (or something like that), near the R end (looking in) of the upper crag. A hold came off when I tried to lunge past the first break.
You get a rapidly developed sense of exposure when you climb on the other routes on this cliff. A few feet above the narrowish grassy ledge from which you start and you become aware of the big black hole beneath you.
The landlord at the Tinners Arms in Zennor is now a very nice man, which is a very welcome change from the surly unpleasant git that was there a few years ago|
