/ Where best to start trad climbing - cornwall/Devon
sent you an e-mail, apparently my reply was too long...
probably not worth travelling for but I did my first leads on the mods at leigh tor (10mins from Ashburton.
Really easy routes on a non intimidating slab so you can concentrate on placing gear. I imagine a lot of people would just solo there.
Sennen and Bosigran have some fantastic low grade climbs and not always too exposed
Halldrine Cove, next to Bosigran. Not many climbs, but nearly all low grade single pitch. Easy access,most climbs can be done as shorter route at high tides. There are no topos in Rock Fax or CCG but can be downloaded.
Superb beginners crag and never busy.
Easy access from Devon and Cornwall (as it's near plymouth)
The Dewerstone - lots of easy and very well protected climbs (not to mention enjoyable). Excellent venue.
