Crag features

Limited climbing, excellent bouldering on the finest Moorland Granite. Solid and extremely rough. Everything from slabs to roofs. More details at http://www.javu.co.uk/Climbing/Guides/DartmoorBouldering/Smallacombe/index.shtml

Approach notes

From Haytor head north after crossing the granite railway contour around the hillside until you reach the rocks [Kathryn Bromfield]

I went to Smallacombe and had a really good day today. Goto Javu before coming here to view detailed info on the crag. The crag is perched on the side of the rugged and remote Haytor Vale with fantastic views and not a soul in sight. I sought out P28 and Undercut Arete, both excellent hanging aretes. P52 (see Javu) was another great arete and I got close to the quality Smiler and will go back for it. There are many other fine little problems to go back for and I haven't even been around every area. A sublime days climbing!
