Nice little venue tucked away from the crowds on a glorious hill side. The outstanding problem is Rowes Arete at V5 6b but there are some lovely strong lines scattered along the hill amongst the trees.

Approach notes

From Bovey Tracy follow the signs to Haytor until you enter Haytor Vale where you take a sharp right turn (not sign posted to anywhere). Continue along this road for a mile or so until you reach a large parking area on the right immediately before a cattle grid.

Park here and cross the road following the large bridleway up and to the right. Folow this for 5 - 10 mins until you see some boulders up ahead. The track then heads slightly down hill to the right follow this to the large prominant pyramid shaped boulder on the left.

lovely little venue with beautiful views. likely to be on your own on absorbing and quality problems. the crack on rowes arete seems to stay pretty damp and manky after rain unfortunatly, but 'the crack' was in good nick after heavy rain. great spot.
