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.

Routes up to 120ft, with the easy ones spotted amidst much harder ones. Many new routes since the 2000 guidebook - try High Issue 224
Even more info on javu http://javu.co.uk/Climbing/NewRoutes/WestCornwall/Bashers.shtml
Tidal - the flood tide can cut the base off abruptly, making escape W towards Praa Sands impossible.
Privately owned. Take your litter and any you find home.
>From the A394 Penzance to Helston rd take the narrow lane (signpost Hendra (SW 604 287). This leads to a car park above the E end of Praa Sands beach. The cliff is about 0.3mi E, before Rinsey Head with its solitary clifftop house.
|This crag seems to take a lot of seepage and so does not seem to be a good winter venue. 19th March '06 after several dry days most of the routes were wet.
Sorting out which route is which is a bit trickey at the moment - there are two seperate lists of new routes on javu as well as the guide. The top needs stakes for belays, some are in place, but it is probably worth taking some spares with you (it's only 10 minutes walk from the carpark).|
