Rothley Crag Northumberland, ENGLAND
Climbs 219 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 235m a.s.l – Faces W
A superb bouldering location. The routes, other than Rothley Crack, are poorly protected (if at all).
On the Scots Gap - Rothbury road, about 2km north of Scots Gap. the road passes the crag. Park either at the small layby at the southern end of the crag or in the large layby at the crossroads further north. DO NOT park on the roadside by the crag.

Guide book is spot on about two things; the bracken and the landings. In summer this has shoulder high bracken growing next to a lot of the problems so would be more of a winter venue.
Also like Shaftoe it seems people only climb on a few areas so most of the place is very dirty and needs more traffic. With that in mind think about taking a soft brush.|
