Crag features

Problems as well as their descriptions (roughly) are taken from the 2007 guide found at ww.javu.co.uk/Climbing/Guides/Stives/BoulderingInStIves2007.pdf 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.
