Caption

These dramatic granite cliffs form part of the Cornish coastline a couple of miles to the South East of Land's End. It is a popular spot for climbers and includes the well-known 'Chair Ladder', described in UKClimbing.com's database as 'A huge and intricate sea cliff offering stunning single- and multi-pitch routes up to 220ft at all grades'

The view from the top is stunning and, in places, a little scary! Buttresses extend from the cliff face with a sheer drop on either side and a few hundred metres west of this spot there's a collapsed sea cave - a 15m diameter hole in the ground that goes all the way down to the beach.
