One of the big ticks on UK trad climbing is Lundy island. it’s a chunk of granite with a pub on top, trad climbing heaven!

UPDATE:

We’ve managed to find a couple of options for a charter boat that can take us across on the dates voted for, which is much more convenient, and may work out cheaper than the Ms Oldenburg if we get enough people 🙂 Please sign up below for a £20 deposit to secure your place on the boat. We propose to split the cost of the charter between the people who sign up for the trip. Depending on how many  sign up, and which boat (max 12) it would could work out between £50-£80 for the return trip.

Climbing

Lundy has the biggest slab of granite in the UK, the Devil’s slide, and a host of quality routes, experience of climbing multi pitch trad on sea cliffs is essential here.

As most of the climbing on Lundy is tidal, we have picked a weekend with low tides around midday.

Accommodation

We are planning on camping on the Island, please book your pitch through the Landmark trust website here(there are holiday cottages too if you’re after a high budget option)

The Pub serves food, all day, so we can eat out as well as cooking on the campsite

Travel

This is the exciting bit, there’s a choice of boat or helicopter depending on your budget. The suggested plan would be to share cars to north Devon, then get on a boat.

Most visitors arrive on Lundy on the MS Oldenburg, which sails from ilfracombe and Bideford more details here 

 

Environment

It goes without saying that Lundy is extra special, known as place to see all sorts of seabirds including puffins. The trip is timed to be after the “bird ban” so that we can maximize climbing options

Please take extra care to look after this place.
