Note that the four routes on the north wall and the first two routes on the east wall, although bolted, might have their 8mm hangers removed. Should this be the case, placing hangers on abseil from conveniently placed cliff-top trees is unproblematic.
Drive a mile and a half east of Coleford town centre on the B4226 Speech House Road to Cinderford. After exiting the 30mph speed limit of Broadwell, continue down the hill a short way to a tarmac track on the left which is the drive to the Worcester Lodge Caravan Park. There is parking space for two or three cars immediately on the left just opposite the small water pumping station. Take the obvious track on the opposite side of the main road past a track jct on the brow of the short rise to another jct beyond. Turn left here, on either the track or the smaller path to its right. Both take you to the perimeter fence of the western quarry, and the central quarry is just beyond. For Spion Kop, continue downhill between two large boulders.
