I've been spending alot of time around the coves of polzeath recently and have found a nice arch and some overhanging walls for traversing. I'm almost certain this must have been climbed before.

There is alot of scope for long traverse linkups and easier-medium problems all around this area. Does anyone have information on any known problems or topos, etc

There's some details of a couple of problems on this page

As you say most of it will have been done before, nothing documented as far as I know but if you head out there at about 6am on a weekday you'll probably bump into the local guru Max having a pre-work session - he knows all the problems there.

In reply to nath_casper: Went on holiday ther last year and took my climbing kit with the intention of doing some climbing on pentire point. My partner wasn't up to the commitment of abseiling in so didn't get the chance. Did have a potter round on the rocks in a bay to the left of the main beach and found some alright problems. A lot of the rock is just chossy shit though

It sounds like this max character is the guy to speak to? Interrestingly I don't think I even been to the northeast side where JAVU talks about the harder problems. I'll have to check these out next week.

I wouldn't recommend polzeath itself, the rock can be quite friable and landings poor. Nevertheless there are good areas nearby. Bodmin moor, Zennor cliffs (more for routes actually) and may be the otherside of Padstow

In reply to nath_casper: The guy who put up most the lines around polzeath is Tom Newberry ive spoken to him on UKB a couple of times and he's probably the guy to ask... as far as a formal guide, there wasn't one when i looked last year (~August time)

You're right theres a lot of potential, just needs developing and making... Unfortunately I'm not down there much at all this year so can't help with making one :(
