PORTHGWARRA


Close to the charming fishing cove of Porthgwarra and the perfectly proportioned beach at St. Levan, are a collection of cliffs that, although not of the same quality as nearby Chair Ladder, are well worth tracking down. The climbs on offer range from multi-pitch easier lines at Porthgwarra Buttress and Hella Point, to a handful of single-pitch, harder lines on the compact, steep faces of Vessacks West and St. Levan's Wall. All of these cliffs are in beautiful surroundings and are convenient for a bit of post climbing relaxation on the beach.
