3 pitches. Coast traverse from Lynmouth to Wringcliff bay. Grade refers to the difficulty of the hardest climbs in perfect conditions (low tide, waves, dry condition etc) and does not reflect the seriousness of coast traversing on Exmoor: in particular you must move with speed to traverse crucial sections before cut-off (at best) by the incoming tide.

What was the hardest section of the traverse can be avoided by hopping boulder to boulder around difficulties. This requires a tide of 0.8m or lower, and good conditions highly recommended.
Scramble westwards passing a couple of gullies, until a particularly harrowing boulder hop along red seaweed covered boulders around a steep black wall above a short corner - This can be avoided by climbing the wall at VS 5a and descending back more easily.
Next east inlet is passed via a short 4 boulder jump. If the previous boulder hop was possible this should be too, and a fair bit easier.
The west wall of Mother Meldrums Gut is climbed rightwards from a round boulder (3 pitches). HS 4b on a lowish line mostly in the barnacle zone, and VS 5a slightly higher.
