Trewavas Head is a small, granite crag that has a number of popular climbs, set high above the clutches of the sea. Although not strictly on the Lizard, its position, close to the town of Helston, puts it within easy striking distance of the routes further to the south. Trewavas Head is a reliable spot to search out if a gale is blowing from the north or the sea is too rough.
