Climbs 7 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 204m a.s.l – Faces NE

Crag features
A small but striking crag, surprisingly little used given its proximity to Bath University. The main cliff known locally as the Outpost at 12m`s high has a couple of steep crack climbs topped by an overhanging lid.The northern aspect has some worthwhile routes,the Original Route H.S.(first ascent M.Bazley, B.Gooding 1964).There are some other small crags in the area by the old mine entrances and a small rock table known as the Devils Table 3m high which used to be good bouldering, now sadly overgrown.The rock type is Oolitic Limestone similar to the rock at Croscombe Crags not the more usual climbing medium of Carboniferous Limestone.

Access notes
Probably best to park in Bath University car parks(pay&display)walk northward through the campus until you emerge on the golf course(the golfers are not friendly)turn right and follow the path until it bends left then descend into the trees, the mine entrance of Freshers folie is the first crag on your left quickly followed by the Outpost.
