About Chair Ladder(OS):

This area is a rockclimbing paradise. Routes of all grades, Mod to E6, and some very technical hard routes. Up to 200 feet long, very sound rock and excellent protection. Southwest facing and only five minutes from the car park! The whole headland of Gwennap Head has over 100 routes on it, Chair Ladder having more than 80 of them. Parts of the crag are tidal, but escape is possible almost anywhere, making it a very safe crag.
