Salute To The Admiral (the story of Wrecker’s Slab)

A short film about the first ascent of Wreckers Slab at Cornakey Cliff on the Culm Coast in North Cornwall.

I always struggle with the name Cornakey. Is it pronounced CORN uh kee, or Corn AKE y? Or perhaps something else entirely?

Lovely! That warms you up from a chilly night in early March in locked-down Sheffield.

Well done to all involved!

Thanks very much. Am pleased you enjoyed. It is in some ways the spark that set the flame for all climbing on the Culm. A really enjoyable day out where climbing wasn’t spoiled by filming or vice versa.

I really enjoyed that, it was a fine evocation of an outstanding route in a fantastic landscape, and a lovely story about a fascinating sounding man. It brought back some personal memories for me too of doing Wreckers many years ago, and the friend I did it with.

Yeah classic Cornwall. God knows, I always thought it was Corn-ICKY
