Climbing Cowpat at Becks Point © Zoomer

Crag features

Penally West is the area west of the range boundary fence and encompasses the beautiful Becks Bay, best savoured around low tide, when these unusual water-worn cliffs expose their hidden secrets. The slabs further west contain a plethora of delightful easier-angled climbs, many ideal for beginners, while the impressive Bubbleton Crag nearer the range boundary contains some rather obscure and harder climbs. 

Approach notes

The climbing can be accessed at all times from the parking point on the grass verge on the A4139.

For the westernmost areas an alternative approach is from the National Trust car park on Lydstep Head and then walking across the beach in front of the holiday park.

Nice friendly crag, abseil approach but otherwise a nice place for relatively new climbers.
