THE LIZARD DWS


The Lizard, mainland Britain's most southerly point, is renowned for its warm weather, cream teas and the infamous Floral Dance, held in the main town of Helston. Also in Helston is the Blue Anchor pub; offered inside is one of the UK's finest ales - 'Spingo', available in three strengths including a drop dead 7.6% variety! The Lizard has always been a rarely visited outlying venue for trad climbers, despite the amazing diversity of quality rock on the peninsula - the best being the excellent Amphibolite, a high friction, often vertical rock, covered in good edges and split by many cracks. It's this rather sexy Amphibolite that provides us with the routes detailed below.
