New Cornish climbing routes uncovered
Bookmark and Share
A series of new routes were uncovered by climbers taking to the Cornish sea cliffs last week.

In a report on the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) Sea Cliff Climbing Event near Bosigran on the west coast of the county, it was noted that 65 climbers from 21 countries were in attendance.

Between them they managed to discover ten new routes, with some as yet unnamed and others attracting monikers such as Penguins in Bondage, What Kind of Voodoo Do You Do and Helluva Roof.

Other routes climbed included established ascents such as Porthgwarra Chimney, Sunny Corner Lane, Desolation Row and Suicide Wall.

The BMC noted that cliffs had been visited in places such as Pordenack Point, the Lizard and Gurnard's Head.

For those interested in making use of climbing equipment, forthcoming BMC events include Cliffhanger - the bouldering world cup, which takes place at Millhouses Park in Sheffield on July 3rd.

It describes the event as "one of the UK’s largest outdoor outdoor-pursuits festivals".
