The climbing is on the supporting walls for the river Bridge. It consists of two tunnels and two curved flanking walls. Given the man-made nature of the walls there are eliminates galore and grades rely on you being strict :) Some of better known 'up' problems will be added but its fun to create your own. Flat grassy landings or hard stone flags or dirt in the tunnels. There is some seepage in the tunnels after prolonged rain.
Beware broken glass is a possibility in the tunnels
No known access issues as this has been climbed on by locals since the 70's and possibly before. Good advice is to avoid the area when the football is on - its 200yds from the Notts Forest ground and Notts County's ground is only a short walk away. Also be aware Trent Bridge cricket ground is very close and on match days the area is very busy.
Parking can be tricky but the odd space can be found on the small riverside road leading to the rowning clubs and back of the Forest ground - check for any restrictions. Easily accessible by Public transport - all buses to West Bridgeford cross the bridge
