Cornwall's a big place. Whereabouts are you? Might help the locals recommend a wall/crag.
Here, let me help you - I remember when I was just starting out and short of a consonant.
The best bet from Wadebridge is Helman Tor. Loads of good problems across the grades. There's also some stuff at Roche, and if you head up the A30 or to Camelford there's some good stuff coming out of the woodwork on Bodmin Moor. Oh, and there's also some good stuff appearing in the Luxulyan Valley, if you fancy a bit of a jungle adventure.
Then there's Penwith...
Got to agree with that. Helman and Roche are both decent bouldering areas, with Helman having a much larger variety of problems and grades etc. Thje stuff in Luxulyan valley is all a bit hard to find from my experience. If you want to get more into it, it may be worth getting the new guide book as it has a load of decent stuff in it in that area.
I'd definitely recommend Helman Tor as it just has such a wide variety of problems and grades. As for guidebooks, the new Cheesewring and South East Cornwall guide has everything you'll need in it with loads of routes and boulders at a load of crags in that area.
