Went bouldering at Porlock Exmoor today. The bouldering is at the end of the pebble ridge and there are three main bits a slab with easy to medium problems it is really good for making up elimantes, a roof with 2 problems going out of it (V3,V5) and a couple of lip traverses. but the main bit is the steep wall which doesn't get the tide and is very dry in the rain. There are lots of good up problems and a few traverse. I did a V6 starting at the bottom of a prow and climbing up via slopers and pinches. It is one of the safest bets on Exmoor in terms of weather and there are never any over boulderers there.
