DADDYHOLE


Daddyhole - 'The Home of the Devil' - is a spectacular and picturesque series of limestone sea-cliffs and quarried bays, located minutes from the hustle and bustle of Torquay's harbour. The centrepiece of Daddyhole is its Main Cliff - a large, strikingly-featured sea-cliff with several exposed multi-pitch climbs in a secluded setting. Bracketing the Main Cliff are two quarried crags perched well above the sea - Telegraph Hole and Meadfoot Quarry. These provide more in the way of open face and steep slab climbs, with the added benefit of potential for swimming and sunbathing nearby.
