Gillercombe is best known for the Classic Rock route; Gillercombe Buttress. Fortunately for boulderers the crag has shed some fair-sized blocks down the hillside, most of which lie either side of a substantial stone wall and on flat and grassy ground. The rock is clean and rough, with some excellent problems in a really beautiful setting. Ian's Arete is the hard classic, but there's plenty of easier stuff to go at. All in all, well worth the easy, though sometimes boggy, 20 minute walk-in.
