I'm heading down to Cornwall at the weekend and i think im allowed to boulder for a afternoon, aside from Hartland Quay which looks amazing but it a small trek away is there any other worthwhile spots to hit up, ideally boulders over 7a?
Any help would be grand!!!
To the OP: It's true, Luxulyan is by far the nearest bouldering, trad and sport to St Austell, just on the outskirts of town. However the developed bouldering tends to top out at 7A rather than start there, so might not be for you.
Closest granite bouldering at V6 & up is Helman Tor with a couple V6s, 7s and 8s each and a V9. For harder stuff, head to the north coast as you seem aware. Hopefully someone else can advise you. Hartland is miles and miles away however.
Helman is great and my favoriate local spot, but as the weather is warming up, it is going to eat skin on the harder problems, best to go in the morning for the south and west facing stuff (lower bloc arete, greyface etc) and the evening for north and east (cave stuff, bodmin queen etc)
