Clodgy Point

Climbs 163 – Rocktype Greenstone – Altitude 5m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Problems as well as their descriptions (roughly) are taken from the 2007 guide found at so they can be ticked according to that.

THE BEST bouldering in St. Ives! The boulders and faces on the foreshore around Clodgy Point have become popular as a forcing ground for hard problems and are home to many of the area’s test-pieces. Clodgy is a very accessible venue almost entirely unaffected by tides. There are top quality problems throughout the grades with everything from lowball traverses to highball scare-fests. Boomerang (V7) and The Groove (V8) are particularly notable.

Approach notes
The nearest car park is found at the western end of Porthmeor Beach. From here, follow the South-West Coast Path for about a kilometre until a wooden gate is reached. The Summit Boulders are seen ahead, with most of the bouldering lying seawards from there. More detailed access notes can be found in the online guide.
