Pednvounder Beach area

Climbs 33 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
Simply a stunning place.

The beach has lots of potential boulder problems / projects and pitches along the walls pinnacles and buttresses rising from the sand. Mid-beach there is a narrow break in the cliff running back to a cave (Charlie's Chank). On its left is a steep, quartz studded wall. Treen butress lies midway along the beach. At the right-hand end of the beach there is a cave, and then Shady Wall with its three cracklines the left hand one being more of a chimney.

Approach notes
Park in the small car park at the village of Treen. Follow a lane which turns sharply left past a campsite. The lane joins the coastal path which winds towards Pednvounder beach.

The beach is reached as far for Pednvounder Upper West Buttress as far as the point where decent to the beach becomes rocky. From this point it is an easy scramble to the sand

The lifeguard may try to tell you that you can't climb around Porthcurno/Pednvounder; ignore the little gimp.
