Hi all

Ill be in lynmouth on tuesday (April 13th) supporting a friend as he cycles there from Hertfordshire for charity. Ive never tried outdoor bouldering on real rock but know there are a bunch of problems on lynmouth beach.

Can anyone offer advise on getting topos/guidebooks for these problems? Also if there are any local climbers who would like to get together for a few hours in the afternoon id love that. Ill of course be masked up and adhering to social distancing etc.

Im a 6b/6c climber indoors and will be hopefully bringing two crash pads with me. 

Any advice or offers to climb together will be warmly welcomed! thank you all

Monk

Thank you very much for the links! Annoyingly the bouldering mats i had planned to borrow are now unavailable so it seems my plan is a bust. Hopefully before too long ill get another chance to try these cool looking problems. thanks again for the help

In reply to Munk:

I just had a look at the pictures for the area and looks like some problems are quite low and above shingle. So could well be worth taking your shoes and having a look. Stay low and choose problems with reasonable landings and have a grade in hand so you can step/jump off rather than have an uncontrolled fall off a desperate move that's at at you limit.

A lot of people used to boulder before the invention of bouldering mats.
