Gurnard's Head (full screen please)

Gurnard's Head (full screen please) 

Named for it's resemblance to the head of a gurnard, a tasty red fish caught around here. Its only drawback is its very spiny and bony nature, but the taste almost compensates!
The main slab of cliff face (black, centre-right) houses the famous climb 'Right Angle'. You traverse to it across the lower rocks (mid-centre) and ascend the steep crack. Yes. I did it once (1978). A terrific mid grade climb! It was a very enjoyable climb, so much so that, more than any other climb from those years, I can remember almost every move!

Many thanks Steve.
Here in Spain, all in turmoil; after the illegal declaration of independence in Catalunya. It will be interesting to see what happens. Spain's Brexit moment! I have the 24 hours news channel on as I also have on the FAR MORE important ipernity site open on my laptop!

Larry, Larry, Larry,
I had the help of ropes, much protective equipment, a few experienced climbing friends and a healthy respect for risk and fear. I never felt I was risking too much and I gave it all up anyway a few years later after one too many friends had met their untimely demise.

A lovely craggy coastline, not dissimilar to the rock formations/patterns in your Spanish pic's.
