Ian and Mike climbed the Mewstone.

Getting off was not so simple but after a wet first attempt Mike made an elegant seal launch.

Then westward to Pudcombe cove, below the National Trust house Coleton Fishacre. There are a couple of nice caves here. Ian chose the overhanging side for some climbing practice.

Finally, a couple of cliff jumps before the really hard bit, battling a spring tide and 15m/s wind back to Dartmouth harbour.
