Bouldering at Bone Hill Rocks © Sean Kelly

Crag features

The moor's most extensive and popular bouldering venue, with many interesting problems and some really tough ones waiting to be done, if you're good enough and want to impress the touroids.

Excellent descriptions of the various boulders and problems can be found on Dave Henderson's www.javu.co.uk

Approach notes

Park at the car park off the B3387, to the E of Widecombe in the Moor. Walk N up the hill towards the boulders.

Yeah a photo topo on the Wave boulder would be good! I will try and make one this week.

First time at Bonehill at the weekend, more reccy than climbing as was walking with girlfriend. Any of the locals fancy putting together a clear photo topo of the wave wall and it's recent additions? Could be me but wasn't so clear on Javu.

Lots of variety in the problems. Difficult to really work the hard problems as they destroy your skin!!

Great place to spend a day, or even a weekend. Lots of problems to keep yourself amused. Could even find some long routes of you wanted to break out the lead rack, not sure how difficult it would be but a good place to learn leading and rope work.

This is an awesome area for bouldering, and well worth a couple of hours travel to get to. All around bonehill there are tors with some great problems and for all abilities, but just bonehill itself could keep you busy all day, and then some. the other surrounding tors are definately quieter though. the granite is punishing on the skin.
