About Carn Sperm(OS):

The twin headland of Carn Sperm and Carn Boel provide some excellent routes. On Carn Sperm, there is an upper terrace with about ten routes, 130 feet long at about Severe standard, and on the lower cliff, five Extremes. Carn Boel, further from Land's End, has a beautiful crack route and some excellent bouldering. In between the two is a zawn offering some excellent climbing up to E6, best late in the day when the sun gets into the zawn.
