Are there any topo's for bouldering Llandudno (Spelling? :shock: ) or do you just kinda climb what you find? Any specific areas/boulders there that's worth a visit?

Navigation and comments highly appreciated!

From what I have found at Llandudo the boulder problems either seem to be ridiculously hard or pathetically easy- I did happen to find some interesting problems near Oudekraal by the reserve where one has a nice layback crack and an awesome setting as when the tide is in you can traverse out and the landing is over knee depth water- but better not fall as the landings can be tricky.

You guys are obviously not looking properly, there are some nice lines to be found there, a small bunch directly on the beach and the large obvious expanse further on.

we're busy making a guide. don't know when it will be ready but it will be up on www.cutloose.ca.tt

for now, what grade problems are you looking for? i'll try direct you to the best ones. (the main bouldering is on the point on the RHS, facing the ocean)

Does Zero Gravity top out? I am superimpressed that it has been done. I was always too scared to try it - not wanting to fall in the sea and all...

Did Joe toprope it first?

Llandudno has some realy good potential for hard problems. Slabby, high top outs that can be seriously scary. Try bouldering some of the allready establish sport routes. You will be a slab-master in no time! Also plenty potential for more sport lines at Llundudno and surounding areas.

zero gravity does top out. joe top-roped the top moves, but he sent it without a spotter!

The Jimmy, for some 7As try:

Kulula (7A+) - a technical slab about halfway down the point on the RHS facing the sea, down the hill and to the left from the massive boulder with the angel painting on. There's a photo in the www.cutloose.ca.tt gallery so you can recognise it

Liquid Militia (7A) - on the obvious boulder closest to the beach after you get onto the point, to the right and slightly behind the first slabs. the problem climbs with your back to the sea and is a stand start off a large sloper, then tops out on crimps

Beach Babes (7A+) - on the small boulder above and opposite the 2nd sector of the sport routes (those 3 easy routes). sit start on a sidepull/pocket for the LH and a shallow mono for the RH, climb straight up on small edges

hope that makes sense...

Any real men visiting Llandudno should have a crack at WWF - it is the big crack thru the roof behind the American Dream slab.

When you get to the hard bit, try to remember the Joe opened it without a spotter!

It is still waiting for a 2nd ascent...
