Includes the amazing Il Duce (E5 6a) and other multi-pitch climbs up to 370ft - value for your money. Access details important: this has taken a lot of BMC negotiation.
Park at Tintagel. Reach the seaward part of the headland by taking a narrow footbridge - may have to pay toll.
At present (September 2021) English Heritage are not allowing climbing. The BMC is trying to negotiate.
The long standing arrangement for climber's access with English Heritage (who own the site) has, at least for the time being, been removed by English Heritage which is a disappointing development. The BMC are in talks with English Heritage in an attempt to regain access for climbers, any updates will be posted on this page.
