The next generation of Cornish guidebooks from the Climbers’ Club is off to a terrific start with publication of the definitive Bosigran and the North Coast. Extensively researched by local activists with years of rock climbing experience on the north coast of West Cornwall, this thoroughly revised Climbers’ Club definitive guidebook includes:
The Great Zawn
Botallack Head Zawn
Just in case anyone needed a reminder this guide includes some of the UK’s best classic climbs such as Little Brown Jug (VS), Bow Wall (E2), Doorpost (Hard Severe), Bosigran Ridge (V Diff) Saxon (HVS), Demo Route (Hard Severe), Longships Wall (E3) and Lands End Long Climb (V Diff).
What new crags are covered in the guide?
Two new areas stand out. Firstly, Geevor, or as it is more affectionately know as Midge Zawn, and the Echo Zawn. Geevor is a short stroll from the car park at the Levant Mine. The first climbs on the left wall begin with some excellent short easy routes on massive holds and solid protection. It’s a great place to take beginners or to grab a more relaxing session in the evening sun. Further down the zawn Sara Scaife and Chris Griffiths fast emerging cult route Midgey, Midge, the Midge is one of those unique routes you won’t find anywhere else. Repeat ascentionists have raved about it and warned about its hard, but thankfully short, second pitch. Secondly, Andy March, Des Hannigan and friends have been beavering away in Echo Zawn during 2013 and 2015 just a stone’s throw beyond Kenidjack. They have come up with several quality routes as well as recruiting Pat Littlejohn for another of his 2-pitch E3 5c gems Old Gold.
