Description

Despite being known as a world-class sport climbing area, Rumney also has some excellent bouldering. The main areas include the Black Jack Boulders and The Pound, but other, more obscure, bouldering zones hide among the cliffs and trees. New problems are scrubbed off and sent every season, proving that there is still adventure to be found on the Rumney hillside.
