19m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A Sennen classic which is very photogenic. Start at a right-leading flake right of the arete.
1) 4b, 12m. Climb the flake to the base of a chimney/crack. Take the precarious chimney/crack via some initially insecure moves to a good ledge and belay.
2) 4b, 7m. Move up to the right-hand side of the overhanging nose above and then undercut left to good holds and pull up to easier ground and the top just above. © Rockfax

βeta: Fantastic flake leading to the chimney crack. Awkward initial footwork in the chimney but moving by out eased it. Great moving out & around the nose onto the last big holds. Great!

βeta: Climbed without having read the recent comments re Gull's nest. I can report that the chick is doing well and doesn't seem too bothered by passing climbers.

βeta: Did not start thanks to the presence of the gull and chick, although sadly an ignorant group were not as respectful and dropped a top rope straight past the nest
