Climbed here this evening and lead second time around, longtime coming, and does size matter. This is a superb place for my first few lead climbs.

Two new climbs have appeared in the area around 'Long Time Coming' recently. Does anyone know the grade of these climbs, especially the one to the right which follows the large crack line? Thanks for the info TommityP, will steer clear for a while.

Climbed here on 6th April 2010, and the owner very politely asked us to finish our evenings climbing but never come back, and make others aware not to climb on this venue. On talking to some local climbers who know the owner and have never had issues before, this is due to the planning permission the owner of the land (that is Bector wood and Cooks wood) has invested money in and is trying to obtain. He is worried a climbing injury could put this situation in jeporady. Please deal with this issue sensitively as it would be a shame to lose another climbing venue. If the planning permission does not go ahead it is possible the owner may review the situation, or at least turn a blind eye to considerate climbers.

Some good routes once you get in past the big fences and nasty signs. Bolting is a little funny in places and ccational sections of loose stuff but worth a visit especially in the summer when it gets the sun.
