A nice afternoon's worth of bouldering in fantastic coastal surroundings. Problems spread our around Rocky Island, Seaton Sluice, with the two main areas being the headland by the Watch House and by the Beacon.
Landings are varying in quality, with many being tidal shelf or rocky, so it is a good idea to bring several pads! Spotting is recommended.
Some boulders are submerged at high tide, so always wait until dry as to not damage the rock.
Parking: opposite the Social Club or at Fountain Head Car Park (both free).
Approach: walk to the kings arms then:
- for Watch House Boulders cross the footbridge and turn right towards the sea. Follow the path to the end of the headland and down to the boulders.
- for the Beacon boulders, continue on the south side of the cut past the Kings Arms and the local art cabin. Take a small path down into the cut and walk to the end of the headland.
