Description

the climbing is generally steep and intimidating, but always on excellent rock and usually with good protection .
The Parthenos presents a large concave face that bristles with overhangs in its upper half and has an impressive hanging corner high in its left flank. A smaller, hidden, wall bounds the cliff to the north. The routes are non tidal.

Getting There

The north side of Grand Falls Zawn forms a broad grassy spur (taken by the original descent): this is approximately 75 metres south of Threequarter Wall and it is terminated by a steep orange face with a small offshore rock island, St Mark's Stone, opposite.

the routes on the main face are reached by abseiling down its right-hand side from good block belays 10 metres back from the cliff-top. A 60-metre abseil reaches a slim brown ledge system that extends leftwards beneath the main face. "Alternatively, approach as for Grand Falls Zawn by descending the fern-covered slope and unstable ridge (fixed rope advised) before traversing north along ledges, 9 metres above sea level, to the starts of the first two routes.
