As I have never been to Cornwall in my 14 years of living in UK, I have spontaneously decided to come along to one of the climbing trips with my club and explore the beautiful far coast of Cornwall.
3 day trip have included visiting and climbing at Gurnard’s Head, Bosigran and Sennen, 3 incredibly beautiful and varied sites filled with single and multi pitch trad climbs. On the way back watching the sunset on the Sennen Cove beach was just a cherry on top.
I have managed to actually drop some slightly useless notes down from the climbs, which will probably mean more to me something then actually be helpful.
1st climb – The right angle – HS 4b 75m – 3 pitch rout – led middle 4b pitch down climb all the way down and slightly up to the second belay. Note: Put loads gear on down climb if leading. Space for 3 peaces of gear on second belay point, small cams would be better.
2nd climb – Door post – HS 4b 55m – 3 pitch rout – led first and last pitch. Good gear and easy climbing.
3rd climb – The little Brown Jug – VS 5a 65m – 3 pitch rout – Led first pitch. Lovely flat climb but small holds and quick moves on the bottom. Hard top-out with the little brown jug on top.
Note: place more gear at the beginning.
4th climb – Anvil Chorus – VS 4c 60m – 4 pitch rout – led first and last rout. Flake in the middle is a beautiful layback with feet in the cracks and some on the wall to the left. A little pumpy. Top out on the 3rd pitch has some small hand and feet holds, mantle to the top. Last pitch very easy going.
5th climb – Dexter – VS 5a – single pitch – seconded the whole climb. One hard move before top out but lovely moves and good gear.
6th climb – Corner Climb – VD – single pitch – complete as a lead. Very good climb for beginners to train longer pitches on trad, leading on 2 ropes. Plenty of gear placements on both left and right.
