On the south westernmost point of England lies the picturesque county Cornwall, famous for its cream teas, Cornish pasties and beautiful sleepy fishing villages. Sandy beaches and secluded bays ideal for swimmers and surfers have been created by the incessant Atlantic, but this rugged coastline offers plenty to rock climbers, too. Incredibly resistant to the continuous onslaught of waves, the rough granite faces found here provide some of the best sea cliff climbing in England.
The climbing areas are mostly situated around Land's End and are often reached by abseil from above. The routes all feel "out there" thanks to their atmospheric position and because of the fact that Cornwall is almost completely bolt free. Thankfully most are easy or in the mid-grades and rise up protectable cracks and corners. A full rack of wires and plenty of Friends and slings will be necessary to ensure an exciting and rewarding day out. Good knowledge of the tide times is essential so as not to get caught out involuntarily!
