Lands End © Neil Higgins

Crag features

A complex series of cliffs and zawns offering challenging (and often committing) climbing. The area consists of many separate crags, with the best climbs in the E3 and above grades, such as Longships Wall (E3 6a), Day Tripper (E4 6a).

Approach notes

Tidal in most areas. Beware large swells: secure yourself on wave-washed platforms.

The Lands End complex is privately owned. Parking for cars is currently £6 (previous free/reduced parking has been withdrawn - see BMC access notes).  Alternative parking up by the First and Last House for some of the more northerly cliffs.

Rockfax App

Went today. The bloke on the car park told me that they hadn't let climbers park for free for 2 years, so make sure you have 3 quid for the parking.

The buttress with Black Wednesday (E5 6b) has been swept away from half height (above bolt) by the 2014 winter storms. Descent route down VDiff on seaward face of World's End buttress still present!
