/ closest bouldering to Swindon
Im thinking Hunstham closest, and other wye valley stuff
Dinas though thats nearly 2 hours away.
Cheddar the cave
Golems cave and assorted Brizzl rubbish
So can anyone recommend something better than Huntsham?? coming from Swindon
I guess ogmore by sea/porthcawl is another option. Tidal and takes a while to get to know the problems, but there is some really nice stuff there depending on your grade level.
I do use it and many others, but people can tell you more about quality etc
It depends how desperate you are. Thirty years ago, back when I lived in Swindon, I used to use a wall round the back of the Wheatsheaf pub in Old Town. It wasn't anything special, but it had holds enough to allow you to be creative about things and get a decent forearm pump going. Not too far out of town, some of the bridges on disused railway tracks used to offer something similar; buy a map and see if you can find any likely candidates. And I always thought the retaining wall that runs directly west from the railway station in the middle of Swindon had potential, though other factors such as traffic, accumulated dirt from traffic and the potential for a member of the railway staff saying the equivalent of 'Get orrff my laaand' always put me off trying it.
