There are possibly more quality boulders and problems dotted around the woods a nice venue for a few problems and lots of exploration! Oh and don't forget the JUMP!

Lots of good bouldering here. Is there anywhere I can find a topo's/descriptions of the problems. Can't seem to find any.

the woods have seen a lot of traffic from some wild camping bivvy types who have left large amounts of rubbish lying around, also there have been many randomly placed campfires (some at the base of at least four problems causing some rock to shatter and break off) If you venture into the woods, just watch your step and go easy
