Excellent fun for the lower-grade climber. Non-strenuous slabs mostly with routes up to 100ft on perfect granite.
Tidal at the base of the main slab; all affected by swells.
From the car park at Lamorna walk W for about 1.25miles past the entrance steps of the Tater-Du lighthouse. Pass a distinctive isolated house with pretty garden on the R. Continue for about 100m to an indistinct path heading L into an overgrown "meadow" with nettles and head-high thorn bushes. Wear robust, long trousers! Follow the path along the wall to cross a low wall onto the open cliff. Beware holes underfoot. Veer R to a bouldery ridge that runs seaward.
|Don't think anyone has been here in a long while - the path through teh meadow was completely overgrown. It took us approx. 40 mins to hack through the stinging nettles and brambles. Now's a good time to visit, as we have done most of the work for you, but take a scythe to finish the job, or at the very least a stout stick.
Nice crag. Also, winter storms have resulted in seaweed growing up the first few metres of the main slab, making all the climbs there more awkward.|
