One of those weekends when everything comes together: Jigsaw (V11), Milkman Sit (V10/11), Man from the Past (V11) and Dark Matter (V12). Part of our Raw Bouldering series: bringing you raw moves with minimal editing
Joe’s Valley (https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/cr…) is one of the world’s premier bouldering destinations. The sandstone boulders that line the hillsides are seemingly made for climbing: the rock is textured but skin-friendly, it’s featured yet strong, and the landings are generally fantastic. Approaches are almost all 5 minutes or less, and many of the most popular boulders are just a stone’s throw from the car.
There are hundreds of established boulder problems at the various areas within Joe’s Valley, and yet a quick glance at the innumerable boulders farther up the hills hint at even more untapped potential for world-class bouldering.
