Rob's Rocks

Climbs 42 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude ? – Faces SW

Crag features
An excellent small crag at the top of the Chew road. Splendid for beginners and a worthwhile venue for some soloing, especially when combined with the other edges nearby (Duckstones and Dovestones Edge). The rock is of excellent quality and dries fairly quickly. It is somewhat exposed and at a high ish altitude so do bring an anorak.

Access notes
Park at Dovestones pay and display. Flog up Chew road for about 45 minutes until the crag can be seen on the left after rounding a bend in the road.

Excellent crag. Well worth the walk up the path. Lots of easier grade routes, some harder problems, plenty to suit all abilities. Take a walk some four hundred feet further along the edge for more routes/problems. The crag tends to dry fast and catches the sun nicely. Great crag for beginners or for the more experienced an evenings solo of the whole crag.
