The North Devon and Cornwall guidebook covers the climbing at Baggy Point, Culm Coast andthe Atlantic Coast of Cornwall at all grades from V Diff to E9.
The long-awaited successor to Iain Peters's 1988 guide, the North Devon and Cornwall guidebook was published in June 2000 and covers a total of well over 1000 routes, an increase of some 400 on those described in the equivalent sections of the old guide. The climbing on Exmoor Coast, inland Cornwall and the Lizard are now being described (or to be described) in other guides. It covers the popular and mainly conventional climbing at Baggy Point, the adventurous and far from conventional climbing on the Culm Coast (inc. Lower Sharpnose) and the serious adventure climbing on the Atlantic Coast of Cornwall (inc. Tintagel, Pentire and Carn Gowla). There are new climbs on nearly all of the cliffs (including Baggy Point) and at all grades from V Diff to E9. The guide has modified the conventional star-system by using hollow stars to show first ascensionist assessments for all unrepeated routes.
