BAGGY POINT


The jutting prows of Baggy Point have for many decades been the traditional venue for high quality slab climbing in the West Country. The slabs are composed of excellent, compact sandstone which is cut by numerous thin cracks and overlaps that conveniently provide many of the routes with good protection.
