The result is a veritable smorgasbord of problems that cater for everyone from beginner to world class on rock types including granite, limestone, schist, sandstone… and other weird stuff. Whether you're a seasoned local or a visitor looking for a family holiday destination with bouldering options, this guide includes over 2300 boulder problems on around 500 pages to choose from, covering the coasts, Dartmoor, inland Devon plus Tintagel and a few other gems just outside of the county.
