Rock climbing in UK
Chair Ladder
Chair Ladder has all the atmosphere of a tidal multi-pitch sea cliff but the grades are generally fairly amenable with most routes being between Severe and E1.

Sennen
If you've had too many beers the night before or an epic in the Great Zawn then you'll probably be ready to appreciate the pleasant surroundings of Sennen Cove. The short outcrop-style climbs start from a spacious wave-cut platform which is largely unaffected by the tides. This is the place to have a picnic, an ice cream and a sunbathe, then get totally boxed on routes such as Double Overhang (Hard Severe), A Swift Flight of Fancy (E2) or Superjam (E5), depending on your ability.

Bosigran
Of all the Land's End crags, Bosigran has the highest concentration of best routes. Many of them are friendly one or two pitch affairs, approached by an easy descent path, whilst those in the Great Zawn require a committing abseil into the dark abyss or an intimidating "crevasse jump". Either way climbs like The West Face (E4), Dream/Liberator (E3) and Xanadu (E2) are superb. The quality of this cliff is reflected by the fact that nine routes appear in the "-Rock" series, a collection of books which describe the finest climbs in Britain.

Simon Crosley reaching for Out of the Blue E3 5b, Lower Sharpnose. This sea cliff, not specifically mentioned here, is worth visiting, too.
