A Climber’s Club Guide to The Culm Coast & Baggy Point.
It’s been almost 20 years since the last definitive guide to this area. In that time there has been the development of a number of new lower grade (S – HVS) venues, the country’s first E11 (quickly downgraded to E9) and an explosion of bouldering including possibly the world’s hardest crack problem. This guide attempts to document all this with detailed phototopos and some fine action shots. The best of the boulder problems in the area are included.
