/ Devon- recommended routes please S - HVS.
what crags would you recommend, trad single/ multi pitch,
and any easier sport crags.
Thanks in advance,
The dewerstone, Centeral Groove, a very nice route especially in the sunshine.
As Matt says, the Dewerstone. Downloadable guide at http://www.javu.co.uk/Climbing/Guides/Dewerstone/index.shtml Central Groove certainly should be on the tick list! Chudleigh is also worth a visit http://www.javu.co.uk/Climbing/Guides/Chudleigh/index.shtml as is Haytor http://www.javu.co.uk/Climbing/Guides/DartmoorRoutes/Haytor/index.shtml The rest of Dartmoor is probably better for bouldering There's not a lot of easy sport climbing in Devon (or even any?).
For single pitch in that grade range: Vicarage Cliff, Screda Point, Gull Rock/Marsland (all on the Culm Coast- Devon/Cornwall border)
Single/multi pitch - Baggy Point - hard sandstone.
In land crags:
Sheeps Tor, all short single pitch, Hound Tor, Hay Tor/Low Man, all granite, single and multi pitch.Chudliegh - Limestone.
Dewerstone, single/multi-pitch, granite.
For adventure, although just into Cornwall: Wreckers Slab at Cornakey
Parts of Baggy will be bird-banned though - check the BMC website.
Dewerstone is great, everyone would agree I'm sure. Just don't take a rucsac. Gear up in the car and just take a flask of soup. Those damned squirrels...
Chudleigh has some great routes, but you need to appreciate very shiny limestone.
Adrian, get the West Country Climbs guidebook from Rockfax. It should point you in the right direction. Otherwise the Dewerstone.
