Grinshill

Shropshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 167 – Rocktype Sandstone (soft) – Altitude 140m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
A mixture of natural and quarried sandstone spread over several outcrops. The outcrops generally do not exceed around 40-50ft in hight with routes ranging from 3a to 6b and provide a number of interesting top rope and boldering problems including:

The nebuliser 6a* (church quarry area)

Sugar bullets 5a* (sugar lump area)

Ceaser's palace 5a** (middle rock area)

There exists the possibility of new route development at all grades!

Please note the main quarries area should be treated with suspicion due to the questionable nature of the sandstone and a recent rockslide just beyond the main hole.

Recent find for me. Impressed with some of the pocketed walls and potential bouldering. Dries quickly - definitely on my visit list again.
