Pilchard Cove, Devon. 'Route 4' © andy_pemberton

Crag features


Slab climbing on a mixture of bolts, in situ gear, and good cam placements (cracks). Long sleeves should be worn as most of the routes are spattered with thorn bushes. Caution as some of the bolts and lower offs seem to have been lost to flaking rock and land slip.

Approach notes

Near the village of Strete between Dartmouth and Torcross on the A379. There is a car park half a mile south of strete (Stretegate). The climb is at the North end of the cove.

There now appear to be a few bolted routes here as well.
