Access Advice

No groups or parties under instruction as this area is a designated as "quiet countryside"

Crag updated. All routes should (hopefully) now be in the correct order. I've added a couple of boulder problems that I know have been done but weren't on UKC and unverified a few routes, not recorded in either the BMC or Rockfax guides, that have had few or no ascents recorded and no votes. I'd be grateful if anyone climbing these could vote so a consensus on the grade can be arrived at.

Great little place and normally quiet but the routes arn't ordered correctly on here! They are correct in the BMC Roaches guide.
