About Carn Gowla(OS):

About two miles of coastal cliffs at St. Agnes Head, mostly about 350 feet high, offering plenty of multi-pitch routes on quite good rock. Not really a place for the novice, but has a lot of HVSs and lower Extremes. The best rock is onthe north side of the head. Very impressive scenery here, without the crowds. The cliff stays damp for several days, so go in a good weather spell.

Directions: OS 203 GR SW 698 512 Alt. 15m
10 miles north of Redruth. From the A30 at Three Burrows take the B3277 to St. Agnes and a minor road up to the headland to parking places near the coast guard lookout. The cliffs are on the north and west sides. Have fun exploring.
