About Porthcurno-Treen Area(OS):

This is a nice area with lots of smaller and broken crags and boulders above nice sandy beaches and tidal pools. It stretches from Porthcurno to Treen, Penberth Cove and Head for about a mile and a half, and on to Porthguaron Cove, where there are four good long V DIFFS. There are some longer routes here also, up to 200 feet from Severe to E2. Warm and south facing, well worth a trip or two.

Three miles ESE of Land's End. Take the B3315 to Treen, then a small road to the coaast at Penberth. From here the small crags are on the coastline to the west, except for Porthguaron Cove, which lies about 800 yards to the east.
