/ Whats Roche Rock like?
Very limited bouldering but a few good problems. Some good routes up to (a very hard) E4.
Best routes are VS/HVS.
Very friendly rock, dries quick, nice spot.
All covered in the new guide.
Definitely worth buying the new guide. Lots of high class granite bouldering and short routes (all grades) in lovely surroundings on nearby Bodmin Moor.
Just seen your profile, guess you already know!
let us know how you get on if you do go. It's on my wishlist (vdiffs and HVDs). Hopefully I'll get down this year before it gets too cold.
Thanks for the help everyone, sounds like a decent place to go!
Will hopefully get over there soon as!
Climbed there on Tuesday. Managed seven routes. Easy access, good friction, interesting short routes. Particularly liked Tregagle's Buttress, Porky and Lord Falmouth.
"it's like a big bit of rock with climbs on it, but that's not important right now."
