The section of Trewavas Head described here is the most significant and has a number of very rewarding single-pitch lines that are on very good steep granite. Approach - From the summit of the buttress, a good but steep and narrow path leads down the eastern side of the walls to below the faces. An alternative descent is under the south face, see topo.
