Baggy Point Devon, ENGLAND
Climbs 150 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude ? – Faces SW
Popular climbing venue. Perfect to combine with a surf at Croyde or Woolacombe. Baggy is best known for its south facing promontories with lovely slab routes on culm - metamorphosed sandstone - with good friction.
Lots of friendly, well protected slab climbs mostly in S to E2 range with easy access. A mid-range climber's slab paradise.
Note that the ever-popular Kinky Boots (VS 4c) with its amazing fallover start can be done in full even at high tide.
However, Baggy has a darker side - check out the climbing on the Cheesegrater Cliff or Concrete Wall for a spice of adventure!
Tidal - most climbs accessible from mid-tide but not at high tide. Exceptions are Kinkyboots and the adjacent routes on Promontory Slab.
Bird ban, 15th March to 31st July, Check guide for full details. Some of Scrattling Zawn, Cheesegreater Cliff, Concrete Wall and Long Rock affected.

Baggy is one of the most breath-taking and beautiful crags in the country. I grew up climbing on these rocks and consider its wonderful routes amongst the best. Please respect this place - use the footpaths and take your litter with you.

Baggy point is a very good climb site, I lived in devon for about 14 yrs, and i climbed there almost every weekend. Very good for begginers and experts.
