Bosigran Ridge - Cornwall


Good morning to you all

During early October, I was lucky enough to stay in the superb CC Count House Hut at Bosigran in Cornwall where my partners in crime and I managed a quick "repeat offence" climb of the easy but classic "Bosigran Ridge". Often called Commando Ridge, it is a “mini-Alpine route by the sea” with great rock, exhilarating situations, a stunning location and surely the very best climb of it's grade in the West Country. Anyway the entertainment was duly recorded so for anyone interested in viewing a short HD film of this great climb including seals, kestrels and a homage to the superlative Count House then please use the following link:



If you wish to sample the full High Def experience and your computer has enough va va voom, you should be able to change the "Quality" icon to at least 720p HD in the bottom right hand corner on the You Tube screen. Anyway all constructive feedback or comments welcome and I hope it inspires a few folks to visit this amazing area and climb the route! :-)


Cheers


Dave

Bosigran, what a place

Thanks Dave for posting this video. It shows why the Bosigran is such a special place to Brits and foreign visitors alike.

Penelope and I visited the Count House, the Bosigran main wall and this ridge in mid June 2014. What a place! The climbing is on clean and solid rock (granite) and the scenery (sea cliffs) just cannot be beat. Wonderful place. Recommended.
