Approach notes

All on NT land: take your litter (and any you find) home.

Either: path down to the coastal footpath and along to the base of the cliffs (10 min); Or: follow the clifftop path past two huts on the L. Prominent rocky headland - pass this and descend twds the sea. High Pennard buttress is on your L and Pennard Buttress on the R.
