The squat, blunt nose of black and golden granite that protects the village of Sennen from the worst of the Atlantic weather is one of Cornwall's best-loved climbing venues. Although not particularly high, the quality of the climbing, the location of the crag and the impeccable quality of the granite combine to provide a crag for all, including non-climbing mates who are just here to sunbathe. Sennen also has the advantages of being virtually non-tidal, only a quick stroll from the parking and within easy walking distance of a fantastic beach. The climbing itself is generally well-protected, vertical crack-climbing interspersed with some serious face climbs.
