Dovehole Boulders

Climbs 68 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
A brilliant little bouldering crag, miles from anywhere (despite the short walk-in). Very nice setting - Northumberland's answer to Font!

Approach notes
Park carefully, avoiding the gates, and call in on the farm just up the road to ask permission.**Old lady at farm happy for climbers to attend. Grumpy Gamekeeper is trying to stop all access but does state that the estate currently have an open access policy. He hates his boss.....and climbers. Be diplomatic, take all rubbish away and report any issues to Estate office.

Beautiful and quiet spot with great views towards the Cheviots. Can be frustratingly sandy at times but there's some real quality climbing to be had.

Some good problems here although a few are getting sandy! Needs a few days to dry out completely however there are some problems that dry out quicker than others..
