The headland at the eastern end of Porth Chapel Beach is made up of a number of broken buttresses and smooth walls that provide a fine and varied selection of routes. Levan's Wall has some excellent climbing in the middle to higher grades, while easier fare and some hard problem pitches are found on nearby Carracks Cliff.
From the eastern end of the beach, boulder-hop along the foreshore to the base of the cliff. If caught out by the tide, climb out from the large ledge above the climbs and then scramble up to the headland and take the coast path back to the beach.
The base of the climbs are non-tidal but the approach is only possible for around 3 hours either side of low water.

|The path down to the through cave is very obvious and about 50m long. After that it's less obvious so make sure you start descending the grassy ramp soon, down a 2m chimney to easier scrambling. The approach with the "bad step" across the corner is quite an easy escape at low tide, but maybe not a good descent on a first visit.|

|The guidebook description (and the description on here mention a path). Although the through cave formed by the slab is distinctive, there's not really a path down to it, just a short vegetated slope. There is a smaller path running back left from the main footpath, but you have to ignore it and drop down lower. This has confused several people (including us on our first visit).|

|Levan's Wall is actually part of Pedn-men-an-mere in the definitive guide and they can be logged at that crag here at UKC. The West Contry Climbs Ticklist needs changing though.|
