Crag features

A short limestone crag secluded in trees. It offers mainly bouldering on excellent compact limestone, ranging from easier problems right of the 'Well', to modern roof desperates on the left. Trad. routes are all solos and extended problems.

Suffers badly from seepage, best visited in summer.

WOODWELL OERT ROAD ACCESS RULES:

1. For ecological reasons, bouldering is only permitted on the three designated areas. Climbers should not proceed past Cave Buttress - this will be marked with a sign.

2. Dogs are NOT allowed.

3. Climbers must not enter the field directly below the rock.

Bouldering guide available here:
