Had a fun afternoon here in the sun. Thought id leave some notes for the approach. Take the path out of the car park and keep to the left. Follow the shale path through the small wood for few 100yards. You will see a farmers wall down the hill on your left. keep walking till you see the fence in front of you. There is a hole in the mesh fence which is the entrance to the crag. Ta' Shaun

Re: the grades. They are British tech grades not font bouldering grades and there seems to be some overlap with the V grades because of this.

Stopped off on the way through to somewhere else to investigate - small, easy access, crag - but bit of a choss-fest on the left and on the top outs, reasonably highball in parts so take a pad. Nice enough for a quick session to break up a long journey, but not worth a full day out.

The grades don't seem to correlate to this (http://media.rockfax.com/pdfs/boulder_grade.pdf) very well. I wonder if this is some kind of local dialect grading system. Probably my bouldering inexperience showing.

Nice spot, sheltered and sunny. Grades seem a bit exaggerated though. Lovely spot to take the kids.

Dropped by today, ideal location for those passing through on the M5 and want a short (sub ten minute) walk in, good bouldering and a sun trap. It's easy to locate, the climbs are self explanatory and you can happily shake off that excessive driving vibe with a spot of action!

rode up there today to scope it out the quarry looks good plenty of routes and a good chill spot at the bottom where you can have a fire, looked at gandalfs as well the big slab on the far right is fun good sloper practise

Many of the boulder problems here are covered in the new North Cotswold Bouldering Guide available from Base Cubic. Also covers Cleeve, new area 'Gandalfs' and Elephant Stone.

MARCH 2012: Someone's had a fire at the foot of Blocky Crack and Stepped Wall and tried cooking many beer bottles, unsuccessfully. Watch out for broken glass underfoot! Cleared it up as best we could.

Nice little bouldering spot, don't be put off by first appearences.

a bit, just interest what the small overhnaging boulder prob is at the far left of the crag?
Bunchuk - 07/Dec/09
There are lots of eliminates, traverses etc with different names and grades, getting a consensus all the obvious lines have been climbed at a range of grades. Any help?
tombeasley - 20/Nov/09
Does anybody have any info on the lines here? Even rough guesses?

It's actually Haresfield quarry, the beacon is further north were Little Haresfield can be found. South facing.
