Cornwall, ENGLAND

Climbs 30 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 89m a.s.l – Faces NW

Crag features
This outcrop of sharp crystalline granite in wonderful woodland setting with its own ambience. There is some very good crack climbing, some bold crimpey routes and some very good bouldering being discovered.

Access notes
Walk into the Luxulyan quarry (Orcahard Quarry)and wonder down to the small bridge that runs under the railway, dont go under this but wade or skip over the boggey track up the bank, these leads to an old leat system. Follow this for a few min's and will lukes can be seen up on the right.

Alternativly, Approach as for luxulyan quarry,instead of walking into the quarry carry on past it then head up the steep hill on the rim of the quarry until you can drop down into the section of woodland behind the quarry. The rocks are straight ahead and are identified by a steep slab capped with a large roof.

Will Luke's Hat is one of southeast best crags and the best crag in Luxulyan by far. The VSs are all tough and would likely be HVS in the Peak District and the harder stuff all looks magnificent, albeit bold. Something for (nearly) everyone here and a magnificent setting, just don't hang around after dark!
