Moe Heffer on Queen Jane @ Cligga Head © Master Chief

Crag features

Unusually for this coast consists of killas slate and granite. Many pleasant routes at the lower grades up to 120ft.

Approach notes

Tidal in some parts.

Take the B3285 from Perranporth for 1.5miles to a steep hill. Turn R through buildings of the Cornwall Gliding Club. Park. Cross the runway to a rough track over a small bridge to a quarry on the cliff edge. The main climbing should be apparent ahead.

No Access Issues

This crag should be accessed via one of the numerous paths in this area, and not by crossing the local airfield as described in the Climbers Club guidebook.

Went to the north face today, its badly out of condition. every route has seaweed covered on it for around the first 20-30 ft.

Glad to see people are climbing here, and improving the crag with some harder new routes on the North Face! Looking forward to giving Maxwell's Treasure and Maxout a go when I have time and the weather improves :D

Look for some excellent bouldering/highball probs just behind the main quarry on the seaward side.

Queen Jane is a wonderfully atmospheric one pitch Diff slab. It starts with a tricky looking traverse, out of sight of the belayer and directly above boiling white water. There's a steep looking wall ahead, but the holds are huge and the angle soon eases off. Very secluded and a lot closer than any equivalent climb if you're in the immediate area. For a secure belay, take a spare rope to connect up as many of the rusty spikes and rings at the top as you can. There's not much else to use.
