Springboard (f6b S2) Plymouth Hoe © Kafoozalem
The best climbing the Plymouth area has to offer is the seafront bouldering. On a calm summer evening it can have a charming atmosphere. There is even a little DWS to do when the tide is high. Most of the problems were done in the 1980s and many have been rediscovered and retro-claimed over the years.
Drive through Plymouth's historic Barbican and follow the coast road towards Smeaton's Tower lighthouse. Park as close to the descent steps as possible (pay and display).
|Noticed beat the hoe has become significantly easier than before. Think a couple of holes have been enlarged. Please keep modifications accidental only. Wiwwim sept 2016|
