Approach notes

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).
