/ Woodwell bouldering
When are you thinking of going? It can seep a lot during wet weather. It's mostly steep, but there are some vertical walls. The ban on the o'ert road area has been lifted, just follow the rules on the sign.
Trowbarrow is nearby as well, which has a fast drying boulder and a slightly overhanging wall that stays dry in the rain.
North Wales might also be worth looking at - Parisella's and nearby areas are good if you want steep limestone. Conditions at Parisella's might be more reliable.
Have you looked at the online guidebook on Lakesbloc?
It's got loads of limestone roofs. And there is a lot of nails hard boulders. In fact - I remember finding a f6A boulder virtually impossible. Enjoy - PS Check the conditions first, the place seeps. UKB is it greasy? thread.
I would definitely take a trip to trowbarrow whilst there aswell.
How would you rate Parisella's against that area of the lakes?
The consensus seems to be to keep an eye on weather.
How is the grading there? From what I understand its pretty stiff but how does it compare to other areas, if that not too open a question.
Will you have a car? If so, you could definitely have a lot of fun sampling various nearby crags.
If it was just a straight choice between Parisella's and Woodwell, I'd take Parisella's. Woodwell roofs are pretty small. There are probably a lot more hard moves on Woodwell problems though. Depends what you are looking for.
Grades at Woodwell are fine.
But the other crags are worth a visit too, especially trowbarrow as its 3 minutes down the road.
Haven't tried most of them - lots have been developed in recent years. Parisella's and Pill Box Wall would keep you busy for a couple of days. Corner a local or search northwalesbouldering for details on the others. Sea View walls looks good: http://www.northwalesbouldering.com/newsitem.asp?nsid=367
