All the routes given *** in the current pair of Climbers’ Club West Cornwall definitive guides.

You can’t get very far into West Penwith climbing before you run into controversy involving Mark and Rowland Edwards and, sure enough, there are quite a few of their routes with three stars (mainly the unconfirmed “hollow” stars) in the books that the crag moderators haven’t included on the UKC logbooks. Rather than poke that hornet’s nest I’ll just list them here:

Rewind (E10), Ziggurat (E5) & Bridge of Sies (E7) at Carn Vellan,
Mean Crack (E6) & Copacabana (E5) at Mayon Castle Cliff,
Watermark (E7), Adrenaline Tide (E9), Tide Master (E4), Temple of Darkness (E6) & Mist of Time (E3) at Pellitras Point
and last but not least London Bridge (E6), Fire in the Soul (E7), The Chicken Run (E6), Spanish Raid (E6), Deception (E4), Lotus Eater (E4), Marble Harbour (E5), Agamemnon (E3), Fireblade (E3) & Uphill Racer (E3) at Basher’s Harbour.
