Description

The Route starts on the bottom of the concrete slope at Combe Martin Beach next to Klin Car park. You summit Little hangman, Great hangman & Holdstone before continuing east following the route that’s closest to the sea. You drop down off Holdstone into Heddons mouth before climbing back out up towards Woody Bay. Once you’ve ran through Woody Bay you push on beneath the valley of rocks, up Hollerday Hill & drop down towards Lynton before heading west. Follow the route west sticking to the route that’s now furthest from the sea. You will re-summit Holdstone & Great Hangman. Little hangman is not required to be re-summited on the return trip. You finish the round once you step back onto Combe Martin beach just of the concrete slope.
