Pecqueries Boulder

The Pecqueries headland has the largest actual boulder in the island as far as I know. It is situated on the west coast between Port Grat and Portinfer.  (Perry's Guide P.xx Zxx)

To get there follow the main coast road northwards from Cobo bay.  You will pass the turn off for Port Soif, then on a sharp right hand bend there's an unmarked turn off for Portinfer.  At the next right hand bend there's a gravel carpark down on your left just before the shallow weed filled pool and the Ronez quarry.  Follow the gravel track up out of the carpark to park overlooking the sea.  The bouldering is on the far side of the obvious outcrop 150m to your left and on a couple of small walls on the beach.

The main boulder has some quality hard problems, however they tend to be impossible to start unless your're tall, so feel free to use a cheat stone if you can't reach the starting holds!
