Rocktype Mica schist
Pylon King enjoying the exposure on Sirius (only HS!) - Lizard point © Mark Davis
Incut, reliable rock. Single- and multi-pitch routes up to 170ft: many starred HVSs, and the remarkable roof route of Aboriginal Sin (E3 5c).
Tidal in parts.
Some parking available at Lizard Point, or (paid) in the field by the lighthouse. A few hundred metres W is the coastguard lookout (emergency phone). 50m further is a drystone wall, steep on seaward. Abseil descent (as backup) recommended.
To get to the Sirius area, the CC guide is much better as it shows the descent on the topo. The Rockfax guide though accurate is too vague, it's pot luck whether you pick the right line.
