About Pentire Head(OS):

The great wall here is perhaps the finest piece of rock in the south west of England. The situation, escapable and not tidal, can still be desparate if you arms are not up to it. The rock is very good, and most routes protect very well. Best on a good summer's day, can be a little chilly with a cold north wind.
Nearest town or city: Padstow
