1st Ascent of Make Tea Not War © Han Woolley

Crag features

Great single- and multi-pitch routes up to 150ft. Steep and good climbing such as Zugzwang (E2 5c), Passchendaele (E3 5c) and Play It Straight (E4 6a).

Approach notes

NT car park at Portquin. Take the coastal footpath beside a post and rail fence. The path turns N under the undercut base of the large, easy-angled Kellan Slab.

Zugzwang looks excellent but 3 or 4 fulmars are nesting on the belay ledge at the moment. Best avoided for a while.
