Crag features
A small bouldering area tucked away in the woods near Gidleigh. There are around 15 problems scattered around the hillside of varying quality with some excellent climbs amongst these. The grades range from V0 to V8+ with a nice selection of styles covered. The better problems are Le Coq V2, Fist full of slopers V2 and the much harder Dark Devotion V8+. There are possibly more quality boulders and problems dotted around the woods a nice venue for a few problems and lots of exploration! Oh and don't forget the JUMP!

Access notes
From the A30 turn off at Widdon Down then follow signs towards Moretonhampstead. Along this road is a turning on the right for Gidleigh follow this through Gidleigh to an obvious large layby and gate at the entrance to the woods which is on this road!

Does anyone regularly climb here. I live ten minutes away and only really found them recently. I was wondering if they'd even been 'discovered'. The army use the area for training and a lot of the waste and fire spots are from that. I was looking at some problems that might benefit from some gentle cleaning but don't want to clean holds on someone's sacred spot.

Lots of good bouldering here. Is there anywhere I can find a topo's/descriptions of the problems. Can't seem to find any.

the woods have seen a lot of traffic from some wild camping bivvy types who have left large amounts of rubbish lying around, also there have been many randomly placed campfires (some at the base of at least four problems causing some rock to shatter and break off) If you venture into the woods, just watch your step and go easy
