STENNIS FORD


This impressive zawn is just a 5 minute walk west along the coast path from St Govanís car park. It is one of the most stared at pieces of rock in the area with ascents regularly attracting a gallery of onlookers. Whether those watching can tell the difference between the regular ascents of the beautiful if slightly unbalanced line of Mysteries, from tenuous top-end repeats of From a Distance, Ghost Train or Point Blank, is debatable. If you are the subject of the gazing hoards, then enjoy it, climb smoothly and don't curse too loudly if you fall off!
