Ladye Bay (Clevedon)

Climbs 59 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces W

Crag features
Discontinous line of low cliffs with bouldering and quite a few sports routes.

The rock is a young limestone, much like Portland.

Quite a few of the routes have hard starts and hard finishes with soft climbing in the middle.

Helmets may be a good idea as we had quite a few bits fall off when we were there!

It is tidal - exiting at high tide could be soggy..

Bolted with staples - they look ok and have held falls!

Bouldering has seen a lot of development recently but James Squire, Rob Stanfield and Jack Bradbrook. Online guide here: http://www.beastlysquirrelblog.com/#/ladye-bay/4569514566

a word of warning to anyone who isn't keen on creepy-crawlies. Some of the pockets hold clusters of inch long sea woodlouse things, and they drop out on you. I had to spend 20 mins with a stick and a torch, dangling on our rope and extracting them from dark cracks before the rest of the party would deign to go near the routes!

There appears to be roughly two new lines of bolts between "Stick Insect" and "Sloped beyond Imagination". Does anyone have any information on these?
