Parking and Approach

Tidal in a few areas, but almost all unaffected. Park at the NT car park off the B3306 (Morvah-Zennor) by the old mine-stack ruins. Follow rocky track N towards sea. Scramble over blocks downwards to find the crag looming on your R. The crag is 300yds long with most of the good routes towards the centre.

 

CRoW Information

Open access land, designated under the Countryside & Rights of Way Act (2000) give area access rather than linear access as provided by public rights of way. It also gives a legal right of access specifically for climbing, as well as walking and other quiet recreation on foot.

Please bear in mind however that the landowner still has the right to restrict access for up to 28 days per year (often used on public safety grounds for shooting in moorland areas), and can also apply for longer term restrictions with Natural England (such as bans on dogs, or regular restrictions during particular times of year). It is important to check for these restrictions regularly as they can be added at short notice – all details for open access land in England can be found on Natural England’s website.

Car park by the old tin mines is NT. For many years you could camp there o/n.
Not anymore, each morning on his way to work a NT warden whizes along tbe coast road in his 4x4 truck.
0740hrs we were ‘informed’ no o/n parking allowed.
All along that road is NT land. Youll get a nasty wake up call if your a late starter.
