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.

Granite sea cliff on the island of St Mary's (Scilly Isles). The head offers some adventurous climbing on mostly clean and sound rock with a great vista over the island of St. Agnes. The headland also has a wealth of underdeveloped boundering amongst the rocks adjacent to the lighthouse and on the surrounding cliffs.
Worthwhile routes include Excalibur (VS 4c) and Fear of Furnace (E2 5c).
Many of the routes may well have only seen a handfull of ascent so grades should be treated with caution.
From the hospital in Hugh Town follow the track southeastwards past Peninnis Farm and through a gate to Peninnis Head Lighthouse. The main crag is situated about 150m to the south west by a few huge granite blocks.
