Airy and exposed climbing on very sound rock! A good head is required as protection is fairly spaced but this makes the climbing all the better! Access is hard work up a steep densely vegetated slope but well worth the effort!!

Access notes
Please ask permission from the gamekeeper by knocking on the door at his house GR 656287 before parking. He does not mind people parking but would appreciate people asking first.

Some boulders have been fully reclaimed by the forest. Little britian is an inch deep in moss and psikabloc has a tree on it. Most other boulders remain clean. Good winter venue as it's south facing.

Good trad if you can hack the boulder and heather bash, and a great bouldering circuit that deserves more attention and a proper write-up on here (where is Brin Done Before?? :0). Worth noting that despite the comments on the classic Spank The Ramp, there is no point ruining it by somehow ignoring the good hold directly in the middle of the problem - it is a proper line not some shitty eliminate....this is not bloody Boltsheugh!!
