The Five Clouds Bouldering

The curious formation of the Five Clouds has left five distinct bumps of west-facing rock faces of varying size and extent. The first two have only limited bouldering on offer, and the third is the best for those looking for routes. The Fourth Cloud has the best bouldering including the brilliant Fourth Cloud Boulder with its set of hard classics. The Fifth Cloud has a few problems and finally there is the Nth Cloud just to confuse the numbering which is situated a little way further along the ridge. The difficulty level of problems is high here and this isn\'t an area for those looking for easy circuits.
