Crag features

The Exmoor Coast Traverse lies between Foreland Point, Lynmouth and Combe Martin, North Devon. The route follows a line between the water and the grass line. Takes a group of four about four/five days to complete; two might do it in two /three days. Best section between Woody Bay and Heddons Mouth. Hardest section between Lynmouth/ Wringcliff Bay under the valley of the rocks. Lots of new Martin Crocker hard conventional routes here. Photos at [Terry Cheek] As there does'nt seem to be a crag listed for the Exmoor Gullies I will try and check them out and add them here. If anyone out there who is local to these routes or has done the traverse would like to take over as moderator please let me know. 

Approach notes

Obviously the route is at sea level, and you must seriously consider the tide as there are few escape routes. Have a look on the low water of spring tides first. Access is M5 then A39 or N. Devon link road from junc 27 to Lynmouth or Combe Martin.
