Crag features

Short but fun pitches with a wide flat beach offering fun bouldering (and likely harder than recorded here). Most are 35ft high - either solo or lead them.

Approach notes

Tidal. Accessible three hours either side of low tide.
Approach from the road end at Porth Nanven, at the mouth of Cot Valley (signposts from St Just). From the car park walk S along the coast path for 500m to a L turn up rock steps. Follow a different path straight on twds a small rocky ridge: beware mine shaft (warning notice). Before the nose of the ridge follow steeply down R, then L to a bouldery ledge above Pompey Wall (part of the cliff). Scramble down.

Restricted Access

Please avoid the crag during the above dates due to nesting choughs.

Winter 2014 Storm Damage update: A slab of rock has peeled of the right hand side of the crag, taking some of the corner with it. This has erased routes such as Box, Fingernail and Exit. Sad times :(
