Description [Suggest Change]
The most classic climbing area of Cornwall, and one of the finest crags in England. Single- and multi-pitch routes in a wide range of grades, generally on excellent sun-baked granite. Most are accessible without having to worry about the state of the sea and tides. There are 3 main areas at Bosigran: (1) the upper/main cliff, with something for everyone; (2) the Great Zawn, more serious; (3) Bosigran Ridge, a pseudo-Alpine outing.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Park adjacent to the Climbers' Club hut, by an old chimney (at Carn Galver) on the B3306 (15 min drive from St Ives). Follow a path gently downhill for about 10 minutes. The path to the upper cliff branches right (another 5-10 min), while Bosigran Ridge is obvious on the left (due west).
