a resource of inspiration and info for all west cornwall boulderers and visitors.....also a good place to put video clips!
V6 for 'Peroxide Wall' is pretty generous, I original gave it V4 6b. Also I don't think it's true to say LECC officers climbed problems here; I heard about the area by reading the manuscript of the latest Climber's Club West Cornwall guide, the bouldering section having been written by John Hooper. Whilst I'm sure Hooper bouldered here before most of us I don't think he has any particular connection with LECC.Oh! And your right with Bosworlas as in the guide but not Boswalis as on the site. It's should also be Helman Tor not Hellmans Tor... Tut, tut, tut.
ok Clodgy, man of detail and history, corrections made. Changes to topo will be done in due course. Peroxide wall prob right about v6, might drop that to V5 for now!
think the full traverse is more v5 than v6 as is peroxide. might be worth mentioning that lanky people will find Tuna a lot easier than diddies who have to jump. Apparently Strongman and Hall have climbed new problems here but its not worth mentioning them.
Being a poxy V4 climber (and not being able to get off the ground on any Clodgey V1) I reckon, having done Peroxide wall twice a few minutes apart, that it should be V4 or 5 at best. Certainly nothing more... which is a shame as I would have liked to have climbed a V6!!
HiI'm sure I changed the grades somewhere or other on the main site. Yes everyone is right it is not V6, I think V4 might be a bit low tho!
