Springboard (f6b S2) Plymouth Hoe © Kafoozalem

Crag features

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.

Approach notes

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

At long last the Council have removed the unsightly and dangerous fence. Now a long traverse can link together many of the best problems for some endurnce training.
