Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Crag features

Incut, reliable rock. Single- and multi-pitch routes up to 170ft: many starred HVSs, and the remarkable roof route of Aboriginal Sin (E3 5c).

Approach notes

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.

Rockfax App

Available in the Rockfax App

The Rockfax App brings together all the Rockfax climbing information with UKC logbooks and presents it into a user-friendly package for use on Android and iOS devices.
