River Dart Rocks

Climbs 2 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces NE

Crag features
Low wall which culminates in a vicous stack of overhangs at the hotel end of the path. Great venue for top-roping, potential for low-level traversing. Line of flakes and pockets on low level roof by the name of "The Pulveriser" (5c)

Access notes
The crag is located very near the Abbey Inn, Buckfast. It was called Black Rock house in 1760 and the name only changed in the 1990's. River Dart Rocks could actually have been know in older times as Black Rocks.

It is opposite the entrance to Bulley Cleave Quarry. Park in the parking bay beside the river and walk 25m away from pub. You'll see a little steep path going down the otherside of the low steel railing. Follow the path beside the river until the bouldering and climbing area. There is also an interesting cave in the limestone that goes quite far in past a tight rabbit hole squeeze.
