Product Overview

Cheesewring & South East Cornwall - Carver/Hawken (St Ives Publishing, 2012)

South East cornwall has a rich variety of developed climbing. Geologically there is a diversity of rock quality ranging from the solid granite of Cheesewring quarry to weathered, heavily crystalline Dartmoor like granite of the windswept Bodmin moors to the vast Devonian schists, schales and slates of the south coast. Even deep water solos can be found on the southern coastline! 
Bouldering in the area is excellent and plentiful and much of it is described here in this book. From the superb location of Downderry beach, withits smooth wave washed rock to the well develpoped favourite of Helman Tor or the remote beauty of the newly documented Bodmin Moor Tors - there's a lot on offer.
