Description

The cliffs of St. Agnes Head, collectively known as Carn Gowla offer some of the best sea cliff climbing in Cornwall, even the whole UK. Home to some routes with a reputation: the awesome corner line of Mercury Direct, the intimidating slab on America and it's partner Guernica, but never crowded. You're unlikely to see another party here, much less a queue for routes!

Getting There

Leave the A30 for the B3277 to St. Agnes. Just as you enter the town, take a left (Goonvrea Road) and then a right onto Beacon Drive. After the camping/caravan site there is a road left heading towards the coast and a coastguard lookout. Several parking areas are found at the end of this road.
