Bouldering in Aberystwyth

Bouldering in the town has always been on the sea walls or in the nearby very tidal Clarach Bay (see the New Central Wales Guidebook 2018 )

In 2018 some hard new boulder problems were added to the north beach of Aberystwyth, mainly the non-tidal very low roof which has Fluffy Sheep in red graffiti clearly sprayed above the chalked up holds. Although extremely short with few holds, an ingenious pair of climbers, Alex and Mat Peacey have done numerous poblems at around 7A including a lie down start to get the best out of the small roof: very impressive videos on Instagram under cragnorthshore.
