CHUDLEIGH


Chudleigh Rocks is a very popular and picturesque crag with a rich climbing history attached to it. The 'Rocks' are composed of excellent limestone that, in general, gives well-protected climbing on sustained and technical pitches. There is something here for all, ranging from multi-pitch lower grade classics to a clutch of fingery testpieces, plus a host of brilliant VS and HVSs. Being close to Exeter, Chudleigh is very quick to get to and more often than not has some of the best weather in the West Country. It can be a good choice to head for if the weather further to the west is poor.
