Summerhill is a 100 acre site on the western edge of Hartlepool which has been transformed for the benefit of rock climbers and a Boulder Park was created in late 1998.

The Boulder Park provides climbing on eight purpose built boulders that aim to recreate natural sandstone climbing areas. For information about Summerhill, including how to join the Friends of Summerhill Group, please Contact (01429) 284584.
