Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

A small, tidal sea cliff with interesting rock.
Park in Lizard and follow signs for the Housel Bay Hotel. From the Hotel, follow the coast path east until you reach the brown, wooden Marconi hut. Turn right and follow the headland until a balanced rock becomes visible on the right hand side. Turn right and descend straight down the grassy gully (rocks on the right are easiest to scramble down.) This will bring you to a large gearing up ledge, from where an abseil is easily rigged or the gully and rocks on the right may be descended.
It is easier to locate this crag using the CC guide description than the photo in West Country climbs. Nb. Whilst Rockfax is correct it is not clear that there is a huge bay seperating the two paths shown in the picture. You'll have no problems if you understand the climbs are on the headland closest to the brown hut.
